Festive Fruitcake Cookies

50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
12 ingredients
48 servings
I cut this cookie recipe out of a magazine years ago, but have never made them, until now. They're very good, and not too labour-intensive if you buy the fruit already chopped. I modified the recipe slightly by adding the ginger. Also, the original called for shortening. I used butter.
