I'm going to make this. It might not be until after the holidays, but I'm going to make it anyway. I'll get the stuff for it this week.

There was story about this Assumption Abbey and making of their fruitcakes in our newspaper today. What an interesting group. I knew I had heard about them somewhere. Really ironic. As I said, plan on ordering one.

I've already posted it but the system isn't letting me post a URL to the thread. If you can find the ISO Fruit Cake thread, it's post 8 (I think) and is from back in June.

No Bake Fruit Cake

I posted a recipe on this board quite a while ago. (5 Apr 2005)
It is a "NO BAKE" made with Graham Crackers, fruits and nutz.
I quit putting any booze in it (and me) in 1978. To me, it's still a winner.

I totally agree. Citron is nasty stuff.
I also agree with the poster who commented on the amount of 'cake' in fruitcake. There should only be enough batter to stick the fruit, dates and pecans together.
my 2,
