These mini cakes are one of my very most favorite Christmas cookie treats!! I have had this cherished recipe for over 20 years and I try to make them every Christmas. They are very easy to make and don't contain all the dried fruit of a real fruitcake (only golden raisins, nuts, dried apricots, and candied red cherries). This is truly a special recipe to me and I hope you try it and enjoy it as I do!
