Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp whiskey (or vanilla or rum)
  • 1 1/2 c coconut
  • 1 1/2 c chopped, dried apricots
  • 1 1/2 c chopped dates- you can substitute the apricots and dates for whatever dried combination you like. I even cut back the amounts of the two fruits, and add the remainder of another fruit. I really like apricots, dates, and dried cherries.
  • 1 1/2 cut chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 c chopped walnuts
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Whisk flour, soda, and salt together in small bowl
  3. In mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add sugars, mixing until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time. Add whiskey.
  4. With mixer on slow, add dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Stir in fruit and nuts.
  5. Drop batter onto greased baking sheets, baking until golden brown, 10-13 minutes.
  6. ENJOY!
