Again another Christmas treat from my Nana...hope I'm not boring anybody with these, but she was a VERY special lady in my life. She always tried to make the Holidays and family get-togethers special. This is one of my favorites as she always made some with the nuts called for, but having a grandchild highly allergic she always made some special for me so I didn't feel left out.
1In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter with the sugar, brown sugar, all spice, and cloves on medium for about three minutes. Add the egg and mix until incorporated
2With the mixer still on low slowly add the flour and a 1/4 teaspoon of salt mix until incorporated, DO NOT over mix. Add the fruit, honey, sherry, and rum
3Cover and refrigerate overnight.
4Take the bowl out and give it a good stir to reincorporate any liquid. Using a tablespoon, spoon out a half a tablespoon of cookie dough, roll into a ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet 1/2 inch apart
5Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until light golden brown
