A cookie a day ~Day 5~Turnover Cookies

Cookies, Cookies, Cookies, I could be great friends with Cookie Monster, because Cookies are my favorite food group.  This is not a lie, a gal that was dating my brother, once told us, that "dessert" is NOT actually a food group.  However, in our family, it IS!  Silly girl.

2 1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. self-rising flour
1/4 c. shortening
3/4 c. butter, diced
1/4 c. sugar
2 egg yolks

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Grease 2 baking sheets.  Sift the flours and cut in the fats until your mix resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Add half the sugar.  Mix in egg yolks and 1 to 2 tbsp. of water.  Mix until you have a smooth dough.  Wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Mix 15 oz. cream cheese with the remaining sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1 c. raisins.  Roll out the pastry anto 1/4" thick and cut into rounds using a 2" cutter.  Fill each round with a small amount of filling.  Dampen the edges iwth water and fold in half to give the half-moon shape.  Brush with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cook.  Keep leftovers in the refrigerator.
