man procmailrc says
If the mailbox name ends in "/", then this directory is presumed to be
a maildir folder; i.e., procmail will deliver the message to a file in
a subdirectory named "tmp" and rename it to be inside a subdirectory
named "new". If the mailbox is specified to be an MH folder or
maildir folder, procmail will create the necessary directories
if they don't exist
and that seems to work in my ~/.procmailrc.
How is your procmail configured?
