I liked it, and so did the people who got over the "fruitcake" stigma and had some. I'm considering making a variation of it for Purim, when you typically eat nuts and fruits. The candied fruit won't be available, but dried fruits always are. The best part was that it was easy and came out exactly as expected. Recipes from ingredient companies (in this case the flour) usually work well because they're trying to sell a product.
I hear you on the piecrust, gryhnd. Sometimes mine are good, sometimes they aren't. Unless it's an unusual shape or needs a top crust, I just buy the ones pre-pressed into tins. At the very least, they are a whole lot prettier than mine.
