Fruit & Nut Cookies
Instructions
  1. Add honey, sherry, salt & lemon juice to dried fruit and nuts; cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit overnight at room temperature.
  2. Cream butter along with both sugars, ground cloves with hand mixer on medium speed, for about 3 minutes.
  3. Add egg and mix until incorporated.
  4. Slowly add the flour and ¼ tsp salt and mix until just combined; do not overmix.
  5. Add the fruits and nuts, along with any liquid in the bowl.
  6. Divide the dough in half and place each half on a parchment paper. This dough is very easy to work with and the recipe makes about 5-dozen cookies, so if you want to divide it into more than 2 logs for future use, go ahead and make 4 smaller logs. Roll each log in the parchment and refrigerate for 2 hours. Place all the logs that are not being used right away in a Ziploc bag and stow in the freezer (right now I’ve 3 logs waiting to be used).
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the log into ½” thick slices. Place them on a ungreased cookie pa ½” apart. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden. My cookies were ready in 16-17 minutes, but the bottoms were slightly browned, so keep checking after 15 minutes.
Recipe Notes

 

 

These are sooooo good, buttery with the sweet and tangy bite from the dried fruit. I think I like them better than Karachi bakery fruit cookies. Thanks Priya for making me try these, they are worth every minute of the wait.

 

 

These cookies go to Mansi @ Fun & Food Blog for her Sugar High Fridays-Fruit & Nut event.
