    podapo's Note:

    My Grandmother always had these on hand whenever we would come to visit. We always gobbled them up. I never truly appreciated them tho, until I finally was given the recipe and realized the TIME that went into them. I recommend making the filling one day and the cookies the next.. just saves you that much time. I also like to just underbake a hair... I'll probably be strung and hung for sharing her recipe..:)

      This is the raisin filled cookie recipe I have been searching for! I've tried others and came away very disapointed. I think I know what the difference is! This filling is cooked with flour giving you a true "filling". The others just has raisins in the middle. This is an exceptional recipe. My hubby thanks you podapo!! I will make these often!

      I acutally had to throw the first batch of cookies dough down the garbage disposal because it was too soft. I then ran back to the grocery and bought the ingredients again. My cookies just did not turn out.. I loved the filling though
