Mini Cream Cheese Fruitcakes


These tender fruitcakes, made with a luscious cream cheese batter, are the perfect size for giving. Buy small aluminum loaf pans at any supermarket.
Presentation Idea: Remove the cakes from the pans, peel off the wax paper, then wash and dry the pans. Put the cakes back in the pans, and wrap them in cellophane bags tied with a bow. They can be served as is, or give them a more traditional turn by wrapping them in muslin and periodically dousing them with brandy for several days ahead, keeping tins in a cool place.
