An heirloom recipe from my mother-in-law's recipe file.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs. Beat in flour, cocoa, and cinnamon, mace, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and soda.
  • Meanwhile soak candied pineapple, orange peel, and lemon peel in bourbon.
  • Add apples, raisins, dates, pecans, and soaked fruits, and mix well.
  • On a greased cookie sheet spoon out half-dollar size cookies, spaced 1/2 inch apart.
  • In a preheated 350 degree (175 degrees C) oven, bake 12-15 minutes.
