What You'll Need
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 cups (12 ounces) chopped mixed candied fruit
What to Do
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and heavy cream. Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg; beat until well combined. Stir in candied fruit.
- Divide dough in half, shaping each half into a 2-inch-diameter log. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate overnight or freeze for about 1-1/2 hours.

- Slice rolls into 1/4-inch slices (see Note) and place 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned.
