I use my mom’s recipe for the dough. Unfortunately, she didn’t write down how she did the raisins. My raisins get so thick and sticky so I’m going to try this recipe. I also do dates. Could I follow this recipe and use dates?
I am wondering if two tablespoons of vanilla is correct. Should it be two teaspoons?
This is wonderful recipe! My husband loves them!
Awesome cookie!....Easy and tasteful. Reminds my boyfriend of his mother's cookie, His favorite!!!!
This recipe comes from the Rebecca cook book..It is an old recipe & very good. My family loves them.The men seem to really like them.I am making some today to send to my son in OK. ! They R worth the time making them.
My grandma's filled cookies were very much like these. They have been a family favorite for generations--especially with the men. In my dad's later years, I always baked/made his favorite cookies, muffins and candies (at gift holidays) for him. The first time, I got this HUGE smile and hug for my gift to him. My sis said she shopped for something for months and all I had to do was make him his favorite sweets. I reminded her that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!!
I normally don't like raisins, but these are amazing. You just can't beat the slight taste of nutmeg and satisfying filling.
These cookies taste just like my grandma used to make. My husband and kids loved them!
Just like grandma used to make
This was my favorite cookie growing up. My Mom passed away in 2004. She had given me her receipe box which disapeared. We didn't use nutmeg or buttermilk, this receipe was very good with a new twist.
