Made up fruit cake

Me and the girl had a lovely time rolling the linzer cookies and screeching every time they came out. I used the recipe on the packet but it didn’t work for us. It seemed too buttery. I am sure the kids will eat the blobs when we visit friends tomorrow.

However, I did make a rather nice bits and pieces fruit cake that I cooked in a shallow rectangular tin. I can only give a rough guide. I also found this website-
