Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Fruit Cocktail Cookies, soft, fruity and delicious.

I have had this recipe for over 30 years (yikes!) and they are a sweet simple cookie to offer up for snacks and desserts. They bake up a bit crisp and soften to a tender cake cookie the following day.

I posted this recipe before when I did not have a camera. In going back over the earlier posts, this one deserved to "served up" again, with photos! I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we have through the years.

Fruit Cocktail Cookies
makes 5-6 dozen - Not at my house, I get 3 dozen 2" cookies!
 375-degree oven

1 16oz can fruit cocktail, well drained

In a large mixing bowl:
1 c butter, softened to room temperature
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
3 eggs
1 t vanilla
Cream butter, add both sugars, beat until light and creamy, add eggs and vanilla, beating well.

In a medium bowl, whisk together to combine well:
4 c flour (spoon lightly into measure cup, sweep off the top)
1 t soda

1/2 ground cloves or my favorite ground mace
1/2 t salt

Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture, blend in until smooth.

Fold in the fruit cocktail.

Drop onto prepared cookie sheets (approximately 1" balls), bake 12 - 15 minutes. Cool on sheets 5 minutes, transfer to cooling racks.

These are tender and moist cookies, therefore they do not layer one atop the other very well. You may want to layer with waxed paper between the layers.

Enjoy!
