Caraway (also Filled, or Jumble) Cookies

A basic cookie recipe. Rolled thin with caraway generously added (or chopped nuts or fine coconut), it makes a crisp delicacy with an old-fashioned flavor. Not so thinly rolled, with chopped raisins or dates, it makes a moister cookie. Cut round with a doughnut shaped round on top it makes old-fashioned “jumbles” to be topped with tart jelly. The same dough may be used for filled cookies with mincemeat or other raisin filling.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup sour milk
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (use lemon extract for jumbles)
  • caraway seeds, raisins, nuts, etc. to taste


Mix ingredients and roll on a floured hoard. Bake on cookie sheets in a 300 or 350 degrees F oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the cookies.
