I did not care for this recipe at all. The cookies overall had a very plain flavor, and I didn't like the texture of the dough, either. The dough was way too light and airy to resemble fruitcake very much, and like I said, they tasted very plain to me. After buying all the expensive ingredients, I was quite disappointed. Maybe they might be better if the cinnamon and nutmeg were almost doubled, and perhaps add some allspice too. Also, maybe if you poured some boiling water over the raisins first to plump them up, and then soaked them for a few hours in some bourbon to flavor them up, it might help. Maybe add some chopped dates and/or prunes too. But as is, I wouldn't make these again. Sorry.
