Great cookie. I used dried cherries instead of candied cherries and I used walnuts. These will. E a great addition to my holiday cookie tray! Made for ZWT 6.

Easy and very good. I left my nuts whole so a "picky" eater could "pick" them out. lol! I added some tiny chocolate chips to it because of my chocolate loving DS. We really enjoyed these. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6 Zingo by an Unruly Under the Influence.

These are a nice textured chocolate cookie. My butter/sugar mixture seized up when I added the fruits/nuts/cream. I heated it a little longer and added a little extra cream and it loosened up into a nice caramel. I love the amount of nuts and dried fruits and the ginger is a really nice touch.
