No, not fruitcake fruitcake, THIS F-R-U-I-T-C-A-K-E!
If you loved Basic Grey’s Figgy Pudding Christmas line from 2009, you’re going to FLIP over Fruitcake! We have jelly rolls, charms and yardage available now – it isn’t too late to get started on those Christmas presents!
And although I am not a fan of traditional fruitcake, here’s my mama’s recipe that I make every year at Christmas and I can never get enough of it…you don’t have to wait until Christmas, though. I hope you’ll try it, too!
1 box vanilla wafers or graham crackers, finely crushed
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1 box flaked coconut
1 box raisins (I use the golden raisins)
1 qt pecans, finely chopped
Mix all ingredients together by hand until well combined; form into log rolls about the diameter of a silver dollar. Wrap tightly with waxed paper, twist ends of paper to secure. Refrigerate overnight until well set; slice into thin rounds to serve. (Slice off just what you need and wrap the remainder of the log with waxed paper; will keep in refrigerator up to 4 weeks.)
