Life is like a fruit cake --- it wouldn't be complete without a few nuts!
Okay, now that that is settled, those who use their fruit cakes as doorstops need not post here. :P
I have two favorite fruit cakes:
GRANDMOTHER'S REFRIGERATED FRUIT CAKE
8 oz. maraschino cherries
1 lb. box dark raisins
1 qt. chopped pecans
1 lb. crushed graham crackers
1 lb. marshmallows
1/2 lb. butter
Juice from cherries
Mix together cherries, raisins, pecans, and graham crackers. Melt marshmallows, butter, and cherry juice in double boiler and pour over first mixture. Roll in waxed paper or foil. Store in refrigerator.
