A simple drop cookie redolent of dried fruits and the distinctive flavor of Irish Whiskey.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup Irish whiskey

  • 1/4 cup candied citron, chopped

  • 1/4 cup golden raisins, blanched and chopped

  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar. Beat in the eggs until well blended. Add the flour and the Irish whiskey, and beat the dough until smooth. Add the fruit and nuts, and mix well. Drop cookie dough from a tablespoon onto the prepared cookie sheets.

My mother used to make these cookies every Christmas and she never passed on the recipe. I remember her sneaking to the liquor store to buy the whiskey for her cookies, since she was a church-going person, and she could never be seen buying whiskey!!! I love these cookies and so does my family.

Great cookies. They will come out flat if you use margarine. Make sure it's butter you're using and they will come out great!
