Ok, I don't like raisins. That said, have to post as this was a recipe from my grandmother beloved by all the family (except me). Times and yield approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the milk, eggs, baking soda and baking powder. Gradually mix in the flour so it will easily roll out. Roll about 1/4" thick, cut out with glass dipped in flour to about 2" circles.
  2. For the raisin filling, place the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan and stir in the water and raisins. Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Cool.
  3. Place 1 t raisin filling on top of each dough circle. Cover each with another dough circle. Press edges together with fork tines dipped in flour.
  4. Bake in a 350°F oven until lightly browned.
