Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. vanilla
2 cups candied fruit, mixed
3 cups broken pecans or almonds
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream shortening and cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add sugars and eggs, mixing well.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda and salt together.
Add flour mixture to egg and sugar mixture; add vanilla. Mix well. Add candied fruits and nuts.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. The cookies will be just browned at the edges.
Hint: You may have to mix candied fruit and nuts in with your hands; a little shortening on your fingers will keep the mixture from sticking.
