    I LOVE fruit cake...
    Here's my recipe for Fruit cake chews
    1 3/4 cups flour,3/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tblsp. sugar 1/2 cup shortening,1/4 cup milk,1/2 tsp.baking powder,1/2 tsp. salt,1 egg,1 1/2 cups chopped pecans,1 61/2 oz. pkg.red candied cherries,1 4oz. pkg. green candied cherries, orange flavor liquier.
    in large bowl measure the first 7 ingredients with 3 tblsps. orange liquier. Mix on low speed until blended. With wooden spoon stir in pecans and cherries or fruit of your choice. I like to use candied citrus peel in place of the green cherries. I also replace the liquier with 2 tblsps orange juice and 1 tblsp. amoretta. You could substitute another choice of your taste.
    I drop these onto greased cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inch apart and bake @ 400 degrees about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and store in tightly covered container . Store up to 2 weeks if they last that long. I have stored mine in the crisper drawer of the fridge in a container with a clean white cloth soaked in wine in the container. It keeps them moist and enhances the flavor. I just can't keep them for very long because I can't keep from eating them. I'm the only one in my household that likes them and I can go through them pretty fast.

    I make 3-4 fruit cakes, in loaf pans. One goes to DD,we eat one(kept wrapped in fridge) & other 2 are cut in 1/2,then tightly wrapped & frozen.Every few mos,they are unwrapped & sprinkled with grape juice,then rewrapped.They keep perfectly.

    Thanks for the links and the recipe. Wasn't looking for one but may have to try these. Love fruit cake and my family thinks I'm nuts. They can't stand it.

    Thanks, sassy granny; I'm going to try this one. When I was younger and skinny, I didn't like fruit cakes. Now, I'm much older and "fluffy" and I love them!

    I am so glad to find other people that like fruitcake. I had a friend who made me a huge one and presented it with a rum hard sauce. Unfortunately she never shared recipes before she died. Been thinking of her a lot and decided to attempt it this year - but in the small muffin size so I don't eat the whole thing at once. :lol:

    I have a wonderful fruitcake drop cookie recipe. It uses a Claxton Fruitcake and a box of yellow cake mix.

    Interested? Or is this too easy? Yummy. Even the grandkids like it!
