Nan’s Cookies

Nan's Cookies 009

My husband use to eat these all the time when he was young. I’m surprised he can remember that far back because that was sssoooo long ago.  His grandmother use to make these and they were a staple in her repertoire. One piece of advice to anyone who cares to listen.  Extract what information you can from your loved ones while they are still here because once they are gone the memories are the only thing left.  It is so nice to remember them by making something that they use to make.

Nan's Cookies 001

Cream together 1 cup of brown sugar and 3/4 cup of butter until well blended.

Nan's Cookies 002

Add your egg and vanilla, beat again until well blended.  Finally add your 4-1/2 cups of flour.

Nan's Cookies 003

Add 2 cups add any kind of dried candied fruit.  I added the very finely chopped kind.

When your candied fruit is nicely through the batter

Nan's Cookies 006

Place onto a parchment lined pan.  I like to use a mini ice cream scoop.  That way the size is consistent.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes.  The amount of time varies depending on your oven.  So keep a close eye on them and when they have nicely turned a golden colour on the bottom, they should be done.  Cool.  These freeze very well.
