Amish Raisin Filled Cookie Recipe

This Old Fashioned Amish Raisin Filled Cookie Recipe is an old Brethren recipe. The German Baptist Brethren are a denomination similar to the Amish, but somewhat more progressive, allowing electric and motorized vehicles. Cooking and baking styles, however, are quite similar to the Amish Raisin Filled Cookie Recipe, perhaps a little more elegant.

This Amish Raisin Filled Cookie Recipe is nostalgic and takes me back to my sister’s kitchen. They have a soft, basic cookie dough rollout full of sweet raisin goodness.

The cookies themselves are soft and fluffy, though plain. It is a raisin filling that adds a delightful flavor. If raisins aren’t your favorite, you may want to explore other cookie recipes or consider using different dried fruits instead.

“Amish Raisin Filled Cookie Recipe offer a taste of tradition with their soft, chewy dough and sweet raisin filling.”

But my previous easy American Cookie Company Icing Recipe with few ingredients is also very delicious.

CAN I MAKE THESE COOKIES WITH OTHER DRIED FRUIT?

CAN I MAKE THESE COOKIES WITH OTHER DRIED FRUIT?

Certainly, If you’re not a fan of raisins, you can easily swap them out for other dried fruits like chopped dates or craisins in these Amish cookies.

You can use whole raisins or craisins if you prefer, but traditionally, the Amish Raisin Filled Cookie Recipe make them with chopped pieces, which some find preferable to the larger, plump raisins. Feel free to customize it according to your taste.

OLD-FASHIONED RAISIN COOKIES

OLD-FASHIONED RAISIN COOKIES

The recipe for these old-fashioned raisin-filled cookies has been around for many years, possibly originating with the PA Dutch people.

I had forgotten about them until recently, but I could almost taste the delicious raisin filling just thinking about them.

My sister used to make these cookies every Christmas, and we’d share them with our neighbors on cookie plates.
