butter, at room temperature
brown sugar, packed
vanilla-flavored cream sherry
chopped mixed nuts
pitted chopped dates
candied pineapple, coarsely chopped
red and green candied cherries, chopped
I followed the recipe exactly, my entire family loved these! 30 minutes cook time is way too long, just check at 20 minutes, I think the most I left some baking for was 25. Make sure to chop everything well! Delicious and filling, I will definitely make this again next Christmas, thank you!
these cookies are delicious - just what I was hungry for. the consistency was great. I chopped the additions up very small and I usedvanilla rum instead of vanilla cream sherry. the cookies stayed in "balls" (I used a scoop), I think I might flatten them next time... cooked only for 20 min, too.
