Number of serving: 4
Dried fruit 2 - 2 ½ cups

Honey 1tbsp

Dry Sherry 2tbsp

Lemon juice 2tbsp, freshly squeezed

Salt pinch

All-purpose flour ? 2 2/3 cups

Sugar ½ cup

Light brown sugar ? 1/3 cup

Butter 2 sticks, unsalted and @ room temperature

Egg 1 extra large

Ground cloves ½ tsp


  • Add honey, sherry, salt & lemon juice to dried fruit and nuts; cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit overnight at room temperature.
  • Cream butter along with both sugars, ground cloves with hand mixer on medium speed, for about 3 minutes.
  • Add egg and mix until incorporated. Slowly add the flour and ¼ tsp salt and mix until just combined; do not overmix.
  • Add the fruits and nuts, along with any liquid in the bowl.
  • Divide the dough in half and place each half on a parchment paper. This dough is very easy to work with and the recipe makes about 5-dozen cookies, so if you want to divide it into more than 2 logs for future use, go ahead and make 4 smaller logs. Roll each log in the parchment and refrigerate for 2 hours. Place all the logs that are not being used right away in a Ziploc bag and stow in the freezer.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the log into ½? thick slices. Place them on a ungreased cookie pa ½? apart. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden. My cookies were ready in 16-17 minutes, but the bottoms were slightly browned, so keep checking after 15 minutes.
