"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
6 T butter or margarine 1/4 tsp. butter flavoring(optional) 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs 1 cup shredded coconut 2 cups candied mixed fruit 1 1/2 cup cut fine dates 1 cup raisins 1 cup nuts chopped 1 can sweetened condensed milk
Melt butter in 15x10 jelly roll pan. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over butter (pat down). Spread remaining ingredients over in layers. Press mixture lightly. Pour milk over top. Bake at 350º for about 25 minutes.(Take out when edges are brown) Cool - cut small squares - very rich! Can vary fruit measurements.
I know fruit cake has a bad reputation, but these are wonderful. If you love fruit cake like my sister and I do, you'll love this bar/cookie. Easy and delicious!
