Merry Christmas All!

Merry Christmas one and all! May everyone have a joyous Christmas Season and a Happy New Year.
If you should feel adventurous and want to try a period recipe, i found this one in "The Williamsburg Art Of Cookery or Accomplish'd Gentlewoman's Companion" for fruit cake: (recipe prior to 1776 from the Graves and Hatcher Families)
Cream one and a half Pounds of unsalted butter, and sift in one and a half Pounds of Flour. Beat the yolks of eighteen Eggs very lightly, then beat into them slowly a Pound and a half of Sugar, then mix with them the stiffly beaten Whites. Combine. Add one fourth Pound each of finely cut candied Orange-peel and Lemon-peel, candied Cherries, three fourths of a Pound of finely cut Citron and three pounds of well-cleaned Currants which have soaked Overnight in one cup of Brandy. Add the Fruits to the Batter and bake slowly in Pans lined with well-greased brown Paper for several Hours.

Merry Christmas All,
