Bready or Not: Fruitcake Cookies

This recipe is a fantastic way to use fruitcake fruit mix up without the fuss and time investment of making fruitcake! These are like chewy oatmeal cookies with soft nuggets of fruit.



Preheat oven at 325-degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, shortening, and sugars. Add egg and vanilla.

In a smaller bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and oats. Gradually mix into creamed ingredients. Stir in the coconut, dates, and other fruit.

Use a tablespoon scoop to place dollops of dough on parchment paper, giving them space to spread. Bake for about 15 minutes. Set on rack to cool. Store cookies in a sealed container at room temperature.
