    These are really easy -- they're made with a boxed spice cake mix! My mom gave me this recipe.

      we loved these easy and delicious cookies. i toasted the pecans and they were a great addition. next time i will try using Sunkist Fruit Bits instead of the candied fruit.

      I did make one substitution when preparing these cookies ~ a generous cup of diced, mixed dried fruits rather than the candied kind, & we were very pleased with the cookies! Took half the batch over to a neighbor couple, but the rest were just for the 2 of us to enjoy devouring! Just know I'll be making these again & again throughout the year! You have a winning recipe here! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
