How To Bake Christmassy Pineapple Cherry Nut Cookies

Fruitcake cookies intense with mixed fruits and nuts, Christmassy Pineapple Cherry Nut Cookies are for gifting as well as enjoying on your own!

I always bake these up last because they shine when first pulled from the oven. If I plan to gift cookie tins or entertain, these are the last to be added so they are the first and PRETTIEST to see.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine chopped glacé cherries, glacé  pineapple, dried chopped cherries, pecans, and walnuts in a bowl. Toss with 1/4 cup of the flour.

In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a handheld electric mixer with a large mixing bowl), cream the softened butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add the egg, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Beat on medium speed until well combined, light, and very, very creamy, about 2 minutes.

Add the fruits and nutmeats mixture, remaining flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined.

Use a 1 tablespoon measure cookie scoop to drop the dough approximately dough 2 1/2-inches apart onto each baking sheet.
