Recipe: Filling for Cookies

  •  1 c. sugar
  •  1 Tb. flour
  •  1/2 c. boiling water
  •  1-1/4 c. chopped raisins
  •  3/4 c. nut meats

Mix the sugar and flour and stir them into the boiling water. Add the raisins and let cook until thick enough to spread on the cookies. Remove from the fire and add the nut meats. Cool slightly and spread. Figs or dates may be used in place of the raisins.

If it is not desired to prepare a filling for the cookies, jam makes a very good substitute.
