A nice spice with candied fruit. The original recipe came from 1001 Cookie Recipe but over the years I have made a few changes. My family gives out cookies at Christmas time and this is one of the standard cookies. When I make them I use the candied fruit from our local spice importer. You may want to chop the fruit a little more.
