Fruitcake Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Top Review by Retro Kali

I didn't care for this recipe. I followed it to the T, and found that by dredging the fruit mix in flour, that the raisins were white even after I baked them. It also did not contain enough sugar, and the final cookie came out very dry. Thanks anyway.
