Years ago while thumbing through magazines, I came across this recipe and it was a keeper. These are great little cookies to have around during the holidays.

8 oz
green candied cherries, chopped
16 oz
candied pineapple, chopped
16 oz
pecans, chopped
15 oz
pkg golden raisins
3 c
all purpose flour, divided
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp

1 tsp
ground nutmeg
1 tsp
ground cloves
1 stick
butter or margarine, softened
1/2 c
firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c
3 Tbsp


1Preheat oven to 300. Combine cherries, pineapple, pecans, raisins and 1/2 cup of flour; toss to coat and set aside.
2Combine remaining 2 1/2 cups of flour and the next four ingredients and set aside.
3Cream butter then gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Add eggs and beat well. Add dry ingredients, bourbon and milk and beat well. Stir in fruit mixture.
4Drop dough by teaspoonsful onto lightly greased cookie sheets ( I like lining w/aluminum foil then spraying). Bake at 300 for approximately 20 minutes but check them at 15 minutes so they don't overbake.
