All of the flavors in these cookies are ones I adore - citrus, spices, brown sugar. Assorted dried fruit and pecans are soaked in liqueur overnight, then added to the dough. It's a marriage made in fruitcake heaven.

The cookies are chewy, with a light spice, and brightened by a kick of orange. The booze, Grand Marnier, is subtle as opposed to traditional fruitcakes that hit you over the head with alcohol. The tops are sprinkled with sugar and sparkle once baked - perfect for the holidays!

Just a note on the dried fruits: I like the combination of dates, dried plums, raisins, cherries, and apricots. Doesn't "dried plums" sound so much better than prunes? You can really use any dried fruit you like, though I'd probably avoid bananas or pineapple.

  1. YUM! I love fruitcake - but I only buy from Colin Street Bakery and it is seriously the best! i am adding these cookies to my Christmas plans - thanks so much!

  2. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website:
