Topic: OT, +Fruitcake comparison (2 msgs / 55 lines)
1) From: Steven Dover
Anyone ever had an icebox fruit cake. Believe me, a baked one can't come
close to an icebox fruit cake. They cost much more, and are very
heavy...like a *big* piece of candy! They are held together by graham
cracker crumbs, coconut and orange juice {an ice box fruit cake is NOT
baked}. After being formed, the cake sits in the fridge for several days
while the flavors mingle. It will keep/remain good for an incredibly long
time. Lemme see... candied cherries, pecans, raisins, coconut {schredded},
graham cracker crumbs, the juice from several oranges and I can't remember
the rest. Anyway, they're great.
Sorry about the "no coffee". - Steve D.

All this talk of fruitcake (I've never been a fan - but perhaps the ones
I've eaten
weren't the best...) has made me pine for a certain cookie my mother used to
make during the Christmas season.
I have her recipes, but this one wasn't in the box, so I searched the
internet
until I could find it - it almost looks like a ravioli - sweet crust, with a
filling mixed
and pre-cooked on the stove - lots of different dried fruits and nuts, with
a generous
dash of liquor (I'd use brandy, but I bet she used rum, knowing my mom).
Anyway, they were filled and baked - oh, so delicious! But I've yet to try
them (the
ingredients would cause me to need to take out a loan these days - and I
think I'd
be the only one in my home to eat them!)
(one of the other Christmas favorites she'd make was, interestingly enough,
rugalach)
mmmm -
