Fruitcake Butter Cookies

My mom made these for us at Christmas when we were growing up. Can use any candied fruit if you like.


  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon brandy extract
  • 3/4 cup candied fruit mix
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


Mix flour, sugar, butter, egg, baking powder, and brandy extract in large bowl at medium speed for 2-3 minutes. Stir in candied fruit, shape in rounded balls 1 inch thick. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Flatten to 1/4-inch thick, bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
