From the Kitchen: Vision of Sugarplums...

Looking for something a bit lighter at the holidays? The average American gains ATLEAST 10 lbs from Thanksgiving to Christmas! WOW. Here's a lighter choice of 'cookie' and no one has to know! :)

* 1 package (15 ounces) raisins
* 1 package (12 ounces) pitted prunes
* 1 package (8 ounces) dried mixed fruit
* 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
* Sugar

* In a food processor, coarsely chop raisins, prunes, mixed fruit and pecans. Transfer to a bowl, mix well. Roll into 1-in. balls, then roll in sugar. Place on waxed paper and let stand at room temperature for 4 hours. Store in an airtight container. Roll in additional sugar before serving if desired.

Yield: about 8 dozen.
