No-Bake Fruitcake Cookies

1 box crushed Vanilla Wafers (food processor works well for this and nuts) 
2 cups chopped pecans
1 cup candied cherries chopped fine (mix red and green if available)
1 cup candied pineapple chopped fine
1 can Eagle brand milk
1 small bottle (1-ounce) rum flavoring or 2 tablespoons real rum
Mix together vanilla wafers and pecans in a very large bowl. Add chopped fruit, mixing to coat the fruit. Add Eagle brand milk and rum flavoring. Mix with wooden spoon or with hands until thoroughly blended. Dump out onto wax paper coated with powdered sugar and form into 1 ½ inch rolls. Wrap well in plastic wrap and store rolls in the refrigerator. Slice cookies off as needed. Keeps well for 1 to 2 weeks or freezes for months. These are a must for the holidays - No baking and they are not dry like most fruitcake cookies. (Even Stan loves these).
