What a waste of ingredients. This was the worst cookie I ever made and I have been making cookies for 50 years. Absolute joke to post this recipe. All that money for cookies I can't hand out to anyone.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, toss together the golden raisins and dark raisins with the whiskey; set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs one at a time, mix until light and fluffy.
- Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture.
- Stir in the walnuts, pecans, cherries, and finally, the raisin and whiskey mixture.
- Drop cookies by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to cool on wire racks.
