Filled Cookies
1/2 cup shortening (melted) not butter, not oleo
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 tsp "Bakewell" cream of tartar

Combine the egg and sugar and then add the melted shortening. Add flour and the remaining ingredients and mix well. Roll dough out on a lightly floured pastry board and roll about 1/8 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter. Place this on the prepared cooking sheet lined with parchment paper then place a small amount of favorite jelly, or date filling in the center of each cookie. Place another cookie on top seal the edges with the tines of a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Watch closely these cookies will puff up while baking but will not get very brown. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen depending on the size of the cookie or biscuit cutter. these cookies remind me of a filled cookie from the "cookie Jar" in Cape Elizabeth, Maine
