Hello Jared,

The only cookie recipe that I can find with that name is the one below. I hope that's it. Let me know if it is or isn't.


"Meal in One" Fruitcake Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour, divided
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 pounds dates, chopped
1 cup chopped candied pineapple
1/2 pound candied cherries (halves or pieces)
1 cup pecan halves
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup coarsely chopped filberts
1/2 cup coarsely chopped Brazil nuts
Combine fruits and nuts in a large bowl and sprinkle with 3/4 cup of flour. 
Use your hands or a wooden spoon to coat the fruit and nuts with the flour. 
In another large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar; add the eggs and 
vanilla, and beat well. Mix in the remaining 1 3/4 cups of flour and the soda. 
Stir in the floured fruits and nuts (batter will be very stiff). Drop portions 
of desired size (I use a large soup spoon) onto greased baking sheets, and bake 
at 350 degrees F until cookies are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Averages 3 dozen cookies.

unfortunately that not the right one thanks for looking though I believe it 
was a Betty Crocker recipe in the 80s


It's not in the 1978 Betty Crocker Cookbook that we have.

I'll post your request for reader input. Can you tell me something about the ingredients?
