Heritage Recipe

Aunt Nellie's Raisin-Filled Cookies

Many family members of the original owners of our cottage, now a bed and breakfast, live in West Kingston. They have watched and appreciated the renovation of this 1925 property. Jack, a nephew of the original owners, gave me the following recipe. Aunt Nellie baked these cookies for her nieces and nephews, as well as for boarders, many of them "railroad men" who worked at the nearby Kingston train station. Our guests still enjoy these cookies. Thank you "Aunt Nellie!"

Ingredients Filling:
2 cups raisins, ground
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon flour
Ingredients Dough:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix filling ingredients, bring to a boil, and cool. Mix together sugar, butter, and egg. Add dry ingredients, alternating with milk; mix thoroughly and add vanilla. Chill dough for one hour. Roll dough until thin; cut with cookie cutter. Fill half of the cookies with 1 teaspoon of filling and cover with a plain cookie, pressing edges together. Prick top with fork before baking. Bake 12 minutes at 400 degrees or until lightly browned. Cool (filling is hot!).
