How to Make Bourbon Fruit Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 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.
