Mr. & Mrs. Bennett baked these together every year of their 30-year marriage
Yield: Makes about 6 dozen 1-1/2 inch cookies.
Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Mix in flour, cinnamon, cloves and baking powder and salt. Add pecans, raisins, dates and cherries. Cookie dough will be quite thick and difficult to stir. Wash your hands and dig in!
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes in preheated 325 F. oven. Cool on wire rack. Store in air tight container to keep fresh.
Note: Recipe can be easily doubled, but use 3 eggs.
