Make the Raisin Filling:
3/4 of a package of raisins
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 or 1 1/2 cups water – it will thicken like picture below. Add more water if it’s too thick. It should be like a thick gravy.

Add a good sized tablespoon in the middle of each round cookie. More is preferable to less because this provides the moisture that makes this cookie so special and succulent. :)

Now add another cookie on top.

And crimp it together at the edges.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Don’t overcook.

Don’t cook them too much, just slightly golden around the edges.

My beautiful mother lived to be 108 years old! She was an amazing woman and she had the Christmas cookies down pat. Lol 

Here she is making mincemeat squares which are fabulous, too.

  12. This is such a joyful post that starts with a joyful photo. I see it's quite an old post, is your mum still with us? Does she still get to bake?
    These sound a bit like something we have here in the UK called Eccles cakes, although the dough bit on them is more of a puff pastry. They are not a million miles away from our mince pies either - a Christmas favourite.
    Thank you for the joy filled recipe and thanks for sharing at Handmade Monday, it has made my day!
