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

Preheat oven to 375 F and grease two cookie sheets; 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. Bake each sheet of cookies for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula while still warm. Place on wire rack to partially cool.
Store the cookies in an airtight container with a slice of white bread to maintain their soft, fruity texture.

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! 5 stars
