    Jellyqueen's Note:

    This was the recipe Mother used for years. She really didn't use recipes, but I did find this in some old cookbooks after she passed away. She didn't write down oven temp or cook time so that is my estimate. Cook time is per cookie sheet. She also didn't write down yield, but it makes a large batch, so yield is an estimate also. Cook these around Thanksgiving, place in cookie tin with wax paper between layers and freeze. Take out just before Christmas and they are wonderful.

    • 6 cups cake flour

    • 2 lbs candied cherries, slight chopped (I use 1 green and 1 red)
    • 2 lbs candied pineapple, slightly chopped
    • 1 lb mixed candied fruit, slightly chopped
    • 3 quarts slightly chopped nuts
    • 1/2 cup grape juice (red or white, but not dry) or 1/2 cup wine (red or white, but not dry)

      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Cream butter and sugar.
