Handwritten Recipe Wednesday: Fruitcake Cookies

I found this clipping from December, 1964, in one of my boxes of handwritten recipes. This has a lot of ingredients, but would be easier to make than regular fruitcake. Also, it makes 10 dozen. If you don’t want that many, change the recipe.

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup jelly

2 eggs

2 tsp. soda

1 1/2 Tbsp. milk

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. allspice

1/2 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1 lb. chopped pecans

1 lb. raisins

1/2 lb. candied cherries, chopped

1/2 lb. candied pineapple, chopped

1/2 lb. citron, chopped

Cream butter, sugar, jelly and eggs. Dissolve soda in milk and add to the creamed mixture.

Gradually add half of flour, sifted with spices. Dredge nuts and fruit with remaining flour and stir into batter. Mix well.

Drop by teaspoon onto buttered and floured cookie sheets. Decorate tops with candied cherries if desired. Yield: 10 dozen cookies.
