Fruitcake Drops Cookie Recipe
1 cup softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
1 tablespoon apricot brandy
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons pure almond extract
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dates
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2 cups chopped red and green candied cherries
3 ounces high quality white chocolate
Preheat the oven to 300° F.
Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the molasses, brandy, extracts, and eggs until smooth and creamy.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and oats. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and blend well. Fold in the raisins, pecans, almonds, and cherries until combined.
Drop 2 inches apart by the tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until set. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
In the top of a double boiler or microwave melt the white chocolate until smooth. Drizzle a little bit of chocolate onto each cookie.
