Made these for Christmas, too close to Christmas to get the "aged flavor", so they may become an incredible New Year's cookie, who knows? I used sweetened cranberries, golden raisins, dried mango (we live in California) and pecans. I used Spiced Rum instead of the bourbon, which I think was a good move. I also would put coconut in next time as there is somewhat of a tropical theme working with my fruit selection. The cookies do not expand and 1 large tablespoon seemed to make a good sized cookie. If you are looking for a fruitcake tasting cookie, this is not it, but it is interesting and seems to bear individual adaptations well. I think next time I will also try adding some cinnamon as they could use a little more zip. All in all a fairly healthy, safe cookie that my boys ate for breakfast. Two was plenty!
