*Stay tuned for my Favorite Holiday Gifts Guide and lots of giveaways coming up in a few days! * *

We’ve never been fruitcake fans, but we do love our fruitcake cookies! Dried fruit layered with cinnamon, brown sugar, and just enough flour and butter to hold it all together until it reaches your mouth! Mama has made fruitcake cookies each year for as long as I can remember. She goes shopping for the candied fruit each year after Christmas, when it is on sale, and stores it in her freezer until the holidays roll around again and we all get to craving the brown sugar/fruity goodness of these yummy cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Brown sugar, packed (I use dark, or whatever I have on hand)
  • 2 Cups Baking Mix (I prefer House-Autry or Pioneer, but Bisquick will work in a pinch)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Stick margarine, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 + ½ Cups diced fruit cake mix (or diced candied fruit of your choice)
  • ½ Cup raisins
  • ½ Cup sliced almonds (the almonds add a GREAT texture)
  • ½ Cup chopped walnuts or pecans
