Irish Christmas Cookies

 

A Touch O' the Irish

 

Ingredients:
1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Granulated Sugar
3 large Eggs
2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/4 cup Irish Whiskey
1/4 cup Candied Citron, chopped
1/4 cup golden Raisins, blanched and chopped
1/4 cup Almonds, chopped

 

Pre-heat oven to 375-F degrees and prepare two greased cookie sheets; set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar. Beat in the eggs until well blended.

Add the flour and the Irish whiskey, and beat the dough until smooth.

Add the fruit and nuts, and mix well.

Drop cookie dough from a tablespoon onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake each sheet of cookies for 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula while still warm. Place on wire rack to partially cool.

Store the cookies in an airtight container with a slice of white bread to maintain their soft, fruity texture.
