Fruit & Pecan Cookies

This is a delicious recipe that I started making 25 years ago. I got the recipe from a teacher friend with whom I taught school.

Cut in large pieces:

  • 2 pounds dates
  • 8 ounces candied cherries
  • 8 ounces candied pineapple
  • 16 ounces pecans (4 cups)

Sift the following ingredients and scatter over fruit & nuts:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cream the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Beat into the sugar mixture:

  • 2 eggs

Add the fruit and nuts to the mixture. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 for 10-13 minutes.
