      Title: 1995 3rd place: christmas rocks
 Categories: Cookies, Holiday
      Yield: 6 Dozen
 
      3 c  All-purpose flour
      1 tb Unsweetened cocoa
    3/4 ts Baking soda
      1 ts Cinnamon
      1 ts Mace
      1 ts Nutmeg
    1/2 ts Ground ginger
    1/2 ts Allspice
    1/4 lb Candied pineapple
    1/4 lb Citron
    1/4 lb Candied orange peel
    1/4 lb Pitted dates
    1/4 lb Figs
    1/4 c  Dried or candied cherries
      1 lb Chopped pecans
      1 c  Raisins
    1/2 c  Dried currants
      1 c  Unsalted butter, softened
  1 1/2 c  Sugar
      3    Eggs
      1 tb Cold, strong coffee
 
    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Have ready ungreased or parchment-lined
  baking sheet(s). Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and
  spices. Cut candied fruits, dates and figs into small pieces and toss
  with a small amount of the  flour mixture. Combine in a large bowl
  with the pecans, raisins and currants.  Set aside.
  
   2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl of electric mixer on high
  speed until light, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time,
  mixing well after  each addition. Mix in the coffee. Stop the mixer
  and add the flour mixture.  Mix on low speed just until combined.
  Using a wooden spoon, fold in the fruit  and nut mixture to coat all
  the pieces.
  
   3. Drop batter onto baking sheet in walnut-size mounds leaving about
  2 inches between each cookie. Bake until set and tops are lightly
  browned, 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in
  an airtight container,  with a small wedge of apple to keep them
  soft. The cookies may be glazed or sprinkled with confectioners'
  sugar, if desired.
