From Tracy L. Jarvis who says: "Bite sized morsels that taste like old fashioned date nut bread or fruit cake without all the guilt of a full sized piece."

Makes about 40

6 large dried medjool dates (pits removed)
6 large dried figs (small stem removed)
6 dried apricots
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
2 tablespoons of Grand Mariner liqueur (or orange juice)
1/4 cup sugar for rolling

Put all ingredients except sugar in a large food processor, start out pulsing then on high for about 1 minute or until 1 large ball is formed. Separate the ball into smaller pieces and put back into the food processor, pulse again until 1 ball forms again. Take small amounts (about the size of a large marble) and roll lightly in your hand then in the sugar, place on waxed paper in an air tight container. Continue with the remainder of fruit paste. Makes about 40 depending on the size ball.

Would make this again.
I made these today instead of rolling in sugar I rolled some in coconut, or nuts and colored sugar. Easy. 5 stars

I loved these! I made them for a family gathering and they were quite a hit. As long as you follow the recipe exactly, they turn out amazing and can join the ranks of holiday favorites! 5 stars
