3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup apple juice concentrate
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cup flour
1-1/2 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
6 ounces dried fruit (mixed)

Chop fruit. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Beat butter in large bowl until creamy. Blend in eggs, apple juice concentrate, and vanilla. Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and allspice; mix well. Stir in dried fruit and nuts. Drop scant 1/4-cupfuls of dough, 3-inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets; flatten slightly.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes, until edges are lightly brown. Cool one minute on cookie sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in tightly covered container.
