My family hates Fruit cake, but you should see them eat
these! I can't make them fast enough! So I thought there may be other kids out there that felt the same. Actually my KIDS are 54,53,and 48, didn't realize I'd been making them that long!

Ingredients

1/4 c

1/2 c
brown sugar
1/4 c
apple jelly
2
eggs
2 tsp
baking soda
1 1/2 Tbsp
milk
1 1/2 c

1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp

1/2 lb

1/2 lb
citron chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
cream butter, sugar jelly and eggs. Dissolve soda in milk and add to creamed mixture. Gradually add half the flour, sifted with the spices. Dredge nuts and fruitswith remaining flour and stir into batter. Mix well. Drop from spoon onto buttered and floured cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes, until edges begin to brown. these cookies ripen just as a fruit cake does, if you can keep them from being eaten right away, cool and keep in a covered tin. sometimes if you can't find citron, use grrn cherries and pineapple, it will give them just a slightly different flavor, but they are still wonderful!
