SNOWMAN LIKES HERMITS...

Doesn't he look like as if  he is reaching into the cookie tin?? ( I didn't stage it)Well he is a funny character anyway.
I made "Hermit" cookies for New Year's Eve. It is an old recipe but I tweaked it a little with my left over spice concoction and candied fruit from the "Stollen" recipe.   The result was better than I expected. Soft, chewy spice cookies that are easy to bake... Who wouldn't like them with a cup of coffee???

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 Cups flour (all purpose)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp half and half or milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp of  my mixed spices (cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, allspice) 
1 cup of mixed candied fruits and raisin mixture.


Sift together flour and spices set aside.  In a large mixing bowl beat butter for few minutes.  Add 1/2 of the flour mixture, sugar, egg, milk and beat well. Stir in fruit and remainder of the flour. Drop by rounded spoon onto greased baking sheet and bake in preheated 375 degrees oven for about 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. They are ready to eat as soon as cooled.
