    Aunty Pen's Note:

    I love these cookies because they are so full of fruit and lots of raisins. It came from a Favorite Brand Names cookbook. I have been making them for Christmas for the past few years and everybody loves them! My co-workers love them too, so I always have to make them some too! I hate making fruitcake so these are much easier! I line my cookie sheets with parchment paper so they don't burn. My oven is quite hot so I lower the temperature by twenty five degrees. I don't bake them for as long because my oven is so hot. I bake them for eight minutes and they are just a nice shade of brown. Hope you like them!

      I didn't have candied fruit to use in this recipe so substituted diced dried fruit, & I was most satisfied with the results (as were the neighbor kids who got them for a bake sale)! However, come the next round of winter holidays, I definitely plan on making these with the candied fruit! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
