DIRECTIONS

  • For filling, mix raisins, salt, sugar, nutmeg, and vinegar in a sauce pan. Put on to boil and when boiling, add cornstarch dissolved in water. After it comes to a full boil again, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • For dough, cream the shortening, sugar, and eggs, and then add the salt, extract, milk, and nutmeg. Add enough flour (about 5 cups) to make the dough easy to handle.
  • Roll dough on a floured surface to a thickness similar to pie crust (about 1/8 inch). Use a cookie cutter to cut circles about 3 inches across. Drop a teaspoon of filling on a circle and cover with another, pressing out all air and press around the edges to seal.
  • Optional: Brush top surface with milk and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 F for 18-20 minutes.
