Original recipe yields 12 dozen cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease several baking sheets. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat together the butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture, alternating each addition with about 2 tablespoons of milk until all the milk is incorporated and the dough is soft. Beat in the sherry, and mix in the nuts, raisins, dates, pineapple, and cherries until thoroughly mixed. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set and the bottoms are very lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

I followed the recipe exactly, my entire family loved these! 30 minutes cook time is way too long, just check at 20 minutes, I think the most I left some baking for was 25. Make sure to chop everything well! Delicious and filling, I will definitely make this again next Christmas, thank you!

these cookies are delicious - just what I was hungry for. the consistency was great. I chopped the additions up very small and I usedvanilla rum instead of vanilla cream sherry. the cookies stayed in "balls" (I used a scoop), I think I might flatten them next time... cooked only for 20 min, too.

Great recipe, instead of using vanilla cream sherry I used Riesling that I had in the fridge and I also added some vanilla flavoring! They turned out great!!!
