Ingredients:  
Filling:
1 1/2 cups chopped (or ground) raisins
3/4 cup orange juice
3/4 tsp grated orange peel
1/3 cup sugar
dash of salt

Dough:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt.

Directions:
Directions:
Filling: Combine all ingredients and cook, stirring frequently until sugar dissolves and mix thickens slightly. Cool. Dough: Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients and stir into the creamed mixture. Chill dough thoroughly.
On lightly floured board, roll out dough to 1/8 in
thickness. (Note: We roll between two sheets of floured parchment , pulling paper and reflouring as needed to keep from sticking) Cut into 2 1/2 inch circles. Place a tsp of filling in the middle of half of the rounds. Cut small circles from the centers of the other half of the rounds. Place these on top of the raisin filled rounds. Press edges with the tines of a fork.
Arrange on a cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 15 to 17 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack.

Personal Notes:
These are awesome. The dough
is tricky to handle since it is very soft even after
refrigeration. After rolling out, we pull the parchment from one side, reflour, then put that side down and remove the other parchment. This makes it easier to remove the cookies from the parchment after cutting. Also make sure to flour the spatula you use to remove cookies to baking pan. Left over dough can be returned to the fridge and reused. NOTE: If this is confusing , you are perfectly welcome to join us at Christmas time to watch (help) us make them.
