Fruitcake cookies

I usually make a batch of fruitcake and give one loaf to my grandpa, and one to my mother's SO for christmas. It's labor-intensive, time-intensive (can you say "soak raisins in alcohol for 3 weeks?), and the ingredients are expensive (candied cherries are HOW MUCH NOW?). So, seeing this recipe from Pioneer Woman got me thinking. Maybe I don't have to make full-on fruitcake this year. Maybe I should just make these cookies...

  1. But grandpa loves his fruitcake!! You can always try these cookies and if he doesn't like them go back to fruitcake next year!
