    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are a cookie that I always make at Christmas time...they are great, cause you can freeze the cookie dough for 2 months, I usually make lots, so I always have the dough ready for when I need it....these taste so buttery and good.

      These are also part of my Christmas baking this year. They are easy to make, and look very pretty on my cookie plate ( I give small $ store plates with cookies away to friends & neighbours) They also taste delicious. Thank you for the posting

      Oh, wow! I used a lb of fruitcake mix (I love fruitcake) and it came out wonderful. I put 3/4of the dough in the freezer. I only needed 10 minutes for lovely soft crun-chewey cookies. Next batch I'll try longer for a harder product. I'd make these for Xmas, but only one of our friends likes candied fruit. Fine. More for me.
