Slice and Bake Fruitcake Cookies Recipe


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
½ cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup raisins
½ cup each red and green candied cherries, chopped

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in raisins and cherries. Shape dough into two 2-inch-thick logs; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

Cut logs into ¼-inch slices. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
