Hi everyone! How have you been? Wow, can you believe that it’s almost the end of 2016 already? I often say the time flies, but this past year was a crazy busy year for my family. Bryson is enjoying his 1st grade life. Logan gets extra love from mom when dad and Bryson are not at home. My husband just finished his Master’s degree. There are so many things to be thankful about. I wonder how you are doing too. I hope you can share your story for the year briefly with us too.
Today, I will share one of my husband’s favorite cookies recipes that I learned from my mother-in-law. I heard my husband talk about raisin filled cookies many times before. He told me how much he likes them. It was a holiday food that his grandmother made many years ago, and nobody makes them now because they are difficult to bake. So, it was on my list of foods to make someday for him someday, which I finally got around to a few weeks ago. I can see why he said they are precious cookies after I tried to bake them myself. lol It is time-consuming and the process is a little more complex than normal cookies. However, the cookies are so unique and delicious, I wouldn’t mind making them for special occasions. hehe I’m not a sweet tooth, and it is not often that I find a dessert that I like, but when I took a bite from this cookie, I just loved it. My first bite was the cookie part with a little bit of the sweet syrup. It was like eating like a normal cookie, but then my next bite was a piece with softened raisins with more syrup. Wow, it was not like eating plain raisins. The texture and flavor of the raisin are changed after they cook in the sugar syrup. I want you to try them for yourself someday. 🙂
I know there are many out there that visit my blog and use my recipes. Thank you very much. I always love to communicate with you through comments, so please leave a comment before you leave. 😉 Stay warm and happy.
