For me it's the raisin tea biscuits that are sold in bakeries (when I lived in Philadelphia).

        Soft cream filled raisin cookies. Came indivodually wrapped in clear plastic. Palm sized. Might have been Royal brand? Also had soft cream filled chocolate cookies, like small cakes with filling. Soft chocolate chip and oatmeal as well, all cream filled. Loved them as a kid.

          I remember those filled raisin cookies! They were amazing. I hope someone sees this and gives you (and me!) the recipe.

        I haven't found a Julia Child recipe for chicken in cream and tarragon. I thought it was in Mastering the Art of French Cooking, but that wasn't it.

        I left the cookbook with my ex or a relative, and never knew where it went. That was one of my first forays into fine dining at home.

            I'm only guessing what you're looking for. Check this link and let me know if it's anything close to that special recipe you want.

              Gmm and Lois, thanks to both of you! I don't remember it having all those vegetables in it. I do have Mastering the Art etc., and I do know that's not it.
              When I first made that dish (several times), I was in my 20s, and not experienced enough to have varied the recipe. My recollection is that it had far less ingredients than that one.

            This amazing cheese bread served at the local diner, I think owned by a Greek family so I've looked down that avenue but no luck.
