This is a great recipe, although I did tweak a bit. My main suggestion is to really ramp up the spices. I use a TON of cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg and dried ginger, plus some vanilla. Probably at least a half tablespoon of cinnamon, for example! I used brandy instead of bourbon, and skipped the pineapple. I just used a thing of mixed glace fruit from the grocery store. I also added dried dates that I cut up. I made these for my dad, in my unending quest to find cookies that he likes and that my mum and I (the dieters) don't like! He loves fruitcake, so these were perfect. He actually rhapsodized for ages about how they were like the "spice cookies" his mum used to make. So yes - definitely a cookie that will appeal to fruitcake lovers!
