Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 1⅓ cups flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups chopped mixed dried fruit (I bought a fruitcake mix which included orange and lemon peels, green and red cheeries, and pineapple) You can buy them separately and use the ones you like though.
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and spices.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and blend together thoroughly. Add the flour mixture to the creamed butter. Lightly mix together, be careful not to overmix. Fold in the dried fruit.
  4. Roll the cookies into 1 inch balls and drop on to the lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Don't overcook or they won't be as chewy) Cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet then remove to a wire rack.
