These were a favorite cookie in my family when I was growing up, and we loved to help Mom make the "thumbprints" in each cookie, where the sweet raisin filling was placed before baking.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter

  • ¾ cup peanut butter

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 ½ cups raisins

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. For cookies, cream margarine with peanut butter. Mix in sugar, then beat in eggs and milk. Stir in baking soda, oats, and flour.

  2. To Make Filling: Combine raisins, water, and lemon juice. Heat until nearly boiling. Mix sugar with cornstarch; add enough (cold) water to make a paste. Stir into raisin mixture and heat until clear.

  3. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Using your thumb, indent the center of each ball, making a fairly good-sized hollow spot. Fill with about a teaspoon of filling. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 10-12 minutes.
