"It's a shame that fruitcake as a species gets such a bad rap. With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - it ought to be a hit. This recipe includes dried fruit, instead of the glowing, candied stuff we've all learned to associate with fruitcake, and is less dense and more cake-like than many fruitcake recipes. It has become a favorite of my friends and family around the holidays (even the skeptical ones), and is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of almond paste. Fruitcake is also traditional for wedding cake in England, and makes a very rich, sophisticated dessert for luncheons or teas." — by Karen Uffelman

"This rich holiday dessert was invented by my grandmother and is a tradition in our house over Christmas. These ingredients were originally the authentic thing -- homemade jam, buttermilk out of the churn, and walnuts you gather and crack yourself. Now we use purchased items, but the cake is just as good. Frost with homemade caramel frosting, or your favorite cream cheese frosting." — by Amy

"Mince pie without a mix? Sure, you can do it. The raisin and apple filling simmers while you make the crust. There's no meat in this 'mincemeat,' either, just a nice buttery crumble topping." — by OxC0FFEE
