Author/Submitted by:

Categories: Christmas / Cookies / Desserts

1/2  c  Shortening
1/2  c  Cream cheese, softened
1  c  Light brown sugar,*
1/2  c  Granulated sugar
2    Eggs
3  c  Flour
1/2  t  Baking soda
1/2  t  Salt
1  tb  Vanilla
2  c  Candied fruit, mixed
2  c  Broken pecans or almonds

* firmly packed The cream cheese gives these cookies a smooth texture, while the fruits sparkle and sweeten the flavor. Nice for using the candied fruits that didn't make it into the fruit cake. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream shortening and cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add sugars and eggs, mixing well. In a seperate bowl, sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Add flour mixture to egg and sugar mixture; add vanilla. Mix well. Add candied fruit and nuts. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. The cookies will be just browned at the edges. Hint: You may have to mix candied fruit and nuts in with your hands; a little shortening on your fingers will keep the mixture from sticking. Yield: 3 dozen. Irene Holloway, Chevy Chase, MD Randy Shearer
