I've been searching for this recipe for years... my great-grandmother then grandmother made these every year at Christmas. They added pecans though. If you're a fruit-cake lover these are little bites of heaven. THIS is what Christmas smells like! Read More

These cookies and so delicious that even people who don't like fruit cakes pannecote etc still love those Russ. Rocks! After the cookie cool completely I brush them lightly with brandy before storing in a tight container. These have a good long shelf life but they never last that long at my home. Thanks for the memories!! Read More
