I made these knowing I, at least, would like them, since I love fruitcake. Everybody loves them. My gourmet cook brother liked them immensely. And they were easy to make. I slightly changed the fruit and nuts: fewer raisins, no green cherries, more walnuts and filberts, a little orange liqueur instead of bourbon. Today I'm going to use up my mixed candied fruit and make them again with more orange liqueur, no raisins (I'm out), and pomegranate juice. I'm confident they'll be delicious.
Soooo Good! Just made these and just ate 4.....missed my mothers fruit cake,she is 94 and has dementia, I used fruit cake, fruit and peel mix... making these for Christmas with egg nog ice cream...very easy to make..next time I will triple the recipe. Happy Holidays.
Thank you forthis recipe. Have done it for many years, lost the recipe..couldn't remember the quantity of ingredients...sooo glad I found it here. Will be making a couple of batches as of tomorrow!...Are you getting 36 cookies? I use a generous teaspoon instead of tablespoon and only got 26 cookies! Inalso reduced the raisins to 1.5 C and drain them of juice b4 adding to mixture..These are delicious., sooo glad I found it again????????
My husband loves fruitcake so I thought I'd give these a try. They are delicious. No substitutions or changes, the recipe is wonderful just the way it is. Thanks so much for sharing, these will be an addition to the cookie list every year.
Excellent - we love these!
This is the recipe my Mom always used. I grind my fruit in a meat grinder because my family doesn't like big pieces. They are delicious Use raisins, cherries, chopped dates, and pineapple.
Delicious. They tasted just like fruitcake. I also used the fruitcake mix from the store. It included citron which added the taste I associate with fruitcake. I will definitely make these again.
Great!! Used candied cherry and pineapple mix and Apple juice,
Excellent! I didn't have raisins so I substituted Craisins instead. I also used the Fruit Cake mix that our grocery store had and they turned out wonderful! So much so, I went back to the grocery store to purchase more Fruit Cake Mix.
Very good recipe! I also used dried fruits instead of candied ones. The dried pineapple, cherries and dried apricots. Maybe will add some citrus next time. I Used only apple juicefor the mix. Baking time is the key. 12 minutes is enough or they dry out too much! I placed mine in the cupcake liners both mini and regular--works great.
