Ingredients

1 package (15 ounces) seedless raisins
1/2 cup bourbon
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
4 cups pecan halves
1 pound candied cherries
1/2 pound mixed candied fruit
Confectioners' sugar, optional

Instructions

Stir raisins and bourbon together and let stand 1 hour. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cream butter and gradually beat in brown sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well.

Add flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves and pecans. Mix well. Add raisin- bourbon mixture and candied fruit.

Drop by teaspoons onto buttered cookie sheet. "Or to make cookies, shape into balls with your hands. This helps hold them together before baking. I find this works better than dropping from a teaspoon."

Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove cookies from cookie sheet and place on paper towel to cool. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar if desired. Makes 10 dozen.
