This is from Libbie's Little Black Book. I haven't tried these yet but her other cookies are great. The bottom 1/2 of the ingredients list is the filling recipe starting with the sugar. Thanks Heather for helping with these.

Absolutely delicious cookies! The dough is very easy to work with. I like the idea of no added time for chilling the dough. Thanks for the great recipe.

This is the best recipe I've found for raisin filled cookies. The dough is absolutely perfect! It rolls out nice and thin and is very tasty with the raisin filling. I like to sprinkle them with sugar before baking just to make the tops prettier and a bit crunchy. Thanks for posting! HK
