Fruitcake Cookies Recipe

Sharing is caring!

I’ve been a bit conflicted over posting this recipe, much like I was for posting the Pecan Pie Cookies recipe.

Once again, this is a recipe that I’ve had – and used – for years. Today, I have NO idea where it came from, either from when I got it, or originally. I’m guessing I got this from a fellow caker (with permission to use it for my business!)… but who? Did they create it? Did they get it from someone else? I have no idea. 🙁

I don’t like how food celebrities tend to just comb the web, looking for recipes to swipe and claim as their own, so I feel a bit icky when considering doing (somewhat) the same. Does honesty about it mitigate the “gross” factor at all?

Thing is, these cookies were SUPER popular, back when I was selling holiday cookie trays. While fruit cake has a bad reputation on its own, these were loved by so many people – including those that hated fruitcake with a passion! It’s been a popular request for a blog entry ever since!

Again, hope I’m not losing any baker’s cred by posting this, but I know it’ll make a bunch of people happy. Especially Davonna. (Hi Nani!)

  1. my mother used to make these every Christmas when we were children (she soaked her raisons in apple juice not whiskey….i am trying the whiskey) She lost the recipe about 10 yrs ago and we have been looking forever. We used to call them fruit jumbles. I am so excited to make a batch and deliver it to her with your recipe! thanks for sharing!

  2. My husband is diabetic and I have been diagnose with celiac desease. Would I be able to replace the flour with gluten free all purpose flour and replace any sugar with spenda.
    Thank you
