Baked the filled cookies last night. Froze them this morning or there wouldn't be any left for Xmas. I absolutely love the cran-raisin filling. I used orange juice instead of water just 'cuz that sounded good to me. The filling is so good I'm thinking of other recipes to use it with. The chocolate filling is good, too, but I love craisins & pecans even more than chocolate. My cookies didn't look as pretty as yours in the pic above but I guess you have experience in your favor. I was impressed with how well the dough handled. I rolled it out on floured parchment paper & then used that to wrap the log in to refrigerate. I'm planning to make more dough to use for sugar cookies. It should be quite easy to cut out. Thanks for the great recipe!

Your welcome. Mine don't always look that good - sometimes I get impatient and spread the filling on before it's really cooled These originally came with a date filling, so I probably should have listed them as "Filled Ice Box Cookies from Aunt Hester Dean, Kathleen's variations." If you like dates (we do, but are allergic to them - bummer) just substitute dates for cran-raisons.
