DIRECTIONS

  • Combine fruit and nuts in a bowl. Sprinkle 2 or 3 teaspoons of flour over the fruit mixture and stir to lightly coat the fruit.
  • Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg, vanilla, and almond extract and mix until light and creamy.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and blend well.
  • Stir in fruit mix. The dough will be very stiff - I found mixing with my handmixer dough hooks easier!
  • Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto parchment covered baking sheets, flattening very slightly with the spoon.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.
