    Christmas time in South Africa is the hottest time of the year. These rich fruit cake type squares were a part of our cold Christmas buffet usually eaten around the family pool.

      Ahh - this brought back memories! I didn't have all the fruit, nor did I have coconut cookies (oh for a Tennis Biscuit!), so I used one cup of light raisins, a 1/4 of a cup of coconut and a 1/4 cup candied orange peel. I added a tablespoon of syrup to the butter-sugar-fruit mixture and I used a plain vanilla cookie. It turned out really well - with a lovely caramel taste. Be careful when adding the egg - add slowly and stir rapidly (otherwise you will have scrambled eggs!).

      Fantastic recipe for a no bake fruit cake! Could play with different dried fruits and cookies.

      Made these for a walk down memory lane ... and they were a HUGE success in my 'new' homeland. Like the previous reviewer, I also used plain vanilla cookies ("biscuits" as we say at home...). I let the mixture cool for a few minutes before adding the egg - or indead, one does get scrambled eggs. And yes - stir like crazy when you add the egg.
