DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, cream together shortening and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, then stir in the cream and vanilla.
  • Combine 3 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate dough for 2 hours, or until firm.
  • To make the filling: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon flour.
  • Mix in the raisins, walnuts and water.
  • Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Grease cookie sheets.
  • On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Using a round cutter, cut out 48 circles 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter. Assemble the cookies by placing one onto the cookie sheet, place a teaspoon of filling in the center, then cover with another cookie.
  • Press the edges together with a fork to seal.
  • Repeat with remaining dough, spacing cookies 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden brown.
  • Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
  • CAUTION: Filling will be extremely hot.
