2 1/2 cups self rising flour (divided)
1 teaspoon baking powder

Flour pecans with 1/4 cup of the flour.  Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and mix thoroughly.  Then add remaining flour mixed with baking powder.  Add nuts, cherries, pineapple, raisins and vanilla.  This will be a very thick batter and might require using hands to mix.  Drop teaspoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 300F for 20-25 minutes.   Makes very large amount, 1/2 recipe for 6 dozen.
