Fruitcake

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
one of twelve recipies I tried this year and the best of the cakes. a big part of that is because it is dried fruit not candied. I did halve the spices after I read other reviews and am glad I did. I also made it without alcohol (apple juice) and with 1/3 less butter and pecans instead of walnuts. still better than the rest of the cakes I tried.

Fruitcake Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
for the first time ever I made fruit cakes this christmas. this is one of 12 different recipies that I worked with and the best. I used dried cherries instead of candied cherries and all pecans in all versions and made first batch in early Dec. but my grandkids did not like the boozey taste. had adults picking the crumbs from the plate. second batch used apple juice instead of bourbon and everyone liked but still too crumbly. third batch I halved the fruit and nuts and these were the bomb. none have lasted long enough to hit peak flavor as they start on them out of the oven. do know if I can hide this next batch they will taste even better as the last ones in the jar are the absolute best.
