2 1/2 cups
1 1/4 cups
light brown sugar
3 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
red and green candied cherries, halved
I'll bet you didn't know you were a hero and saved my life...or at least $40 worth of glazed fruit, nuts and other ingredients. I made an "Easy, Light" fruitcake recipe in a 20 qt stock pot. Scaled to 10 cups flour, 1 lb buter etc. The only thing they were good for was weighing down a body thrown overboard. I salvaged the fruit and nuts by 'squishing' the bricks in warm water and used them in YOUR recipe. HEAVEN!!! They were WONDERFUL!! I can't thank you enough.. I even substituted burgandy for whiskey in the second batch because I ran out, and they were still great. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Not well liked. The flavors did not seem to mesh well
I HATE FRUITCAKE!!!!! But these cookies are absolutely delicious! I used green candied cherries and candied pineapple and soaked them in whiskey along with the raisins for about an hour. I also toasted the pecans before baking. I only baked half of the batch and served the cookies at Christmas dinner. A few days later,by popular demand,I was baking the rest of the batch. These cookies are so moist and chewy. They have become a permenant part of my holiday baking.
I didn't add the candied cherries but they were still great!
This was an excellent recipe! I substituted 1/2 cup of jamacian rum instead of whiskey, a 450gram container of fruit glace instead of cherries, and a cup of coconut soaked with the rum instead of pecans. My whole house smells great and the cookies are yummy, even though I overcooked the first batch a little crispy!
this is a great recipe! If you are looking for more rum flavoring try soaking the nuts too!
This was disgusting. A waste of expensive ingredients. I followed it to a tee and really wanted it to work because it sounded good and I actually like these flavors. But they were akward and seemed to need more of a foundation for all the "heavy" ingredients.
Wow! This is a wonderful recipe; and has been a big hit in my family (even for those who are disgusted by fruitcake). Though, instead of the red and green candied cherries, I used a candied fruit mix because that's what my husband brought home from the store (candied fruit isn't the easiest thing to find, afterall). Thanks for the great recipe!
