When it comes to holiday gatherings, I’ve never come across a table without a choice of fruit cakes. Some have a little more alcohol than others. Festive feasts wouldn’t be complete without fruitcakes. How about a fruitcake cookie, though? If you haven’t already, I’d want to encourage you to give this dish a whirl. For the coming Christmas celebration, Whippoorwill Holler’s best fruit cake cookies tutorial on Youtube is a good go-to source. Fruitcake cookies are a great way to astonish your guests!



  • a cup of raisins
  • 1 cup crumbled red cherry
  • 1 cup crumbled green cherry
  • 1 casserole of candied pineapple
  • 1 cup of nuts
  • 1/2 cup Crisco butter
  • granulated sugar, 3/4 cup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 t. almond extract.
  • 14 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


The oven should be preheated to 350°F.

Put each component in a separate jar. Chop the candied cherries and pineapples into small pieces before serving. Chopped cherries and pineapple go into a big mixing dish.

Combine half of the 11.4 cup all-purpose flour using a spatula.

Combine 12 cup Crisco butter with 34 cups of sugar, 1 egg, and 12 teaspoons of vanilla essence and almond extract in a separate dish.

Use a hand mixer or a paddle mixer to thoroughly whip the ingredients. Add the remaining all-purpose flour to the dough mixture and combine with the candied fruit mixture. 2 cups sugar, 2 cups raisins, and 2 cups nuts go into the batter. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well-coordinated.

Prepare a baking sheet and drop some cookie dough onto it using an ice cream scooper.

Once it’s done, take it out of the oven and let cool. Make sure you place the cookies on a nice looking plate to serve to guests. This dessert is good to pair with tea or coffee after every heavy meal. Or in the mornings before Christmas dinner. Always take your time and savor every bite.
