Yummy, Yummy, These are so good that you can hardly stop eating them.DH loves them. Very easy to make. Recipe makes a lot of Cookies. I only baked a few. It is nice to be able to slice off a few and bake them. This will be one of my christmas Cookies.Thank you BeachGirl recipe is a keeper.
I tried this recipe because ,I had a package of candied fruit I've been shuffling around my freezer for so long,I hate to tell you how long.Anyways,I used half on recipe 106561 fruitcake bars,they were very good.The cookie recipe, wasnt sweet at all and real crisy.But,I dont think I'll be making them again.No,one in my family really likes candied fruit in anything.It was a nice way of using up that package.I thought for sure that package would decompose before I got to use it.
