Fruit drop cookies:

1/2 cup oil
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup candied mixed fruit (I usually add a little more)
1/2 cup raisins (I use regular and golden raisins)
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 375 degs. Combine oil, egg, and sugar. Beat for 2 minutes. Sift 1 cup flour with baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Add to oil mixture. Mix well. Mix remaining 1/2 cup of flour with fruit and nuts. Stir into mixture. Drop by tablespoons onto greased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes until edges are golden brown.

Yummy with a glass of eggnog!!
