I’ve been a bit conflicted over posting this recipe, much like I was for posting the Pecan Pie Cookies recipe.
Once again, this is a recipe that I’ve had - and used - for years. Today, I have NO idea where it came from, either from when I got it, or originally. I’m guessing I got this from a fellow caker (with permission to use it for my business!)... but who? Did they create it? Did they get it from someone else? I have no idea. 🙁
I don’t like how food celebrities tend to just comb the web, looking for recipes to swipe and claim as their own, so I feel a bit icky when considering doing (somewhat) the same. Does honesty about it mitigate the “gross” factor at all?
Thing is, these cookies were SUPER popular, back when I was selling holiday cookie trays. While fruit cake has a bad reputation on its own, these were loved by so many people - including those that hated fruitcake with a passion! It’s been a popular request for a blog entry ever since!
Again, hope I’m not losing any baker’s cred by posting this, but I know it’ll make a bunch of people happy. Especially Davonna. (Hi Nani!)
