Ingredients

  • What You'll Need:

  • 1

    cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • ½

    cup heavy cream

  • cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½

    teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½

    teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2

    cups (12 ounces) chopped mixed candied fruit

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and heavy cream. Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg; beat until well combined. Stir in candied fruit. Divide dough in half, shaping each half into a 2-inch-diameter log. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate overnight or freeze for about 1-1/2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray. Slice rolls into 1/4-inch slices (see Note) and place 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
