Chef Melissa’s Fruit Cookies - Galletas de Frutas (EN / ES) edit

I discovered Blyberg.net and its Catalog Card Generator today and immediately loved the vintage look of the cards. In seconds I was inspired to share with you this recipe to prepare delicious Fruit Cookies. They keep well for months, and like good fruitcake, improve with age.

The fruit cookies sound divine, sweetie! I love soft cookies with fruits in them. One of my favourites, lemon-raisin cookies, are of that ilk. 
Thanks for the link. The card representation is really funky-kitsch-cool!

why when you bake cherries and chocolate cookies do they turn blue?(I omitted the butter from the recipe, but other than that its a standard recipe.)

Hola Chris! just select “PRINTED” from the three choices they list in the top of the form, then just fill in the blanks, click preview and you will get the card…I just went there and its working wink

Mdl: the cherries turned out dark red because I used the dried kind. What did you use instead of butter?

A big hug!
