Why wait for the holidays to make a chewy, fruit- and nut-packed homemade cookie? They're delicious.
Mix 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice or white vinegar plus enough milk to make 1/2 cup to use for the buttermilk.
Cookie dough can be covered and refrigerated up to 24 hours before baking. If it's too firm, let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
