While I love fruit cake, I've never been a big fan of fruit cake cookies until my friend (Juanita) shared a super easy and tasty recipe with me. The original recipe is included on a card in a photo.

I've added extra ingredients and tweaked it to my liking.

Hope you enjoy this wonderful Christmas Cookie as much as I do.
