In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Christmas Fruitcake Cookies. These cookies will allow you to have the flavor of fruitcake without the trouble! You will notice that some of the measures below are either tiny or unusual amounts. The original recipe was 4 times as large, so I divided each ingredient by 4, and this made medium-sized cookies for me. If you want the original recipe, just multiply every ingredient by 4.
