Sue this is one of my hubby's favorite Holiday Cookies. Helen
We just spent this week in Fort Smith,AR.
So convenient - the airport was 5 minutes from our hotel.
Don had a seminar at Fort Chaffee for the Dept. of Energy US Marshalls.......
Some interesting history there.
Makes about 4 doz.
Tastes nothing like the traditional fruitcake we've all come to either love or hate.
Didn't have golden raisons - used regular.
Added 1 cup chopped dates along with chopped candied fruit.
Soaked with enough whiskey to cover fruit...quite the kick!
Glad you liked them. You are Right, not like the regular fruit cake.
We sure like them and they hold up great for gifts..
