    BonnieZ's Note:

    Even those who do not like fruitcake like these cookies. Very chewy and moist cookie with spice overtones. These also freeze very well for make ahead holiday baking. This is a recipe that I adapted from a recipe clipped from a magazine years ago. Cooking time includes chilling & baking.
