I HAVE MADE THESE COOKIES FOR 25 YRS. THE ONLY THING I DO DIFF. IS USE 3 CUPS OF FLOUR AND 2 TBLS OF CINNIMON. ALSO I ALTERNATE DRY INGREDIANTS AND WET ONES INTO THE BUTTER, BROWN SUGAR AND WHITE SUGAR MIX. DO NOT OVER MIX THESE COOKIES. THESE ARE A GREAT SCHOOL BAKE SALE ALTERNATIVE AS THEY ARE FILLED WITH FRUIT INSTEAD OF PB AND CHOCOLATE. THEY ARE MY FAMILIES MOST FAVOURITE COOKIE. HOPE THIS HELPS.

I can't believe I baked these cookies (not a huge fan of fruit cocktail), but the cookies came out rather well. Should I make them again, I'd chop the fruit up into smaller pieces.

I think it is a very good receipe especially for young children, and teens, and for older people that like to stay away from the frosting, and all the added toppings that many cookies can have.it is also good for them for it has the fruit.I usually leave the nuts and raisans out of mine and it still taste OH! so good! Kids eat them up! and they dont' know it is good for them.I recommened it for those afterschool snacks, potlucks,very easy receipe.
