Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: cake flour, cinnamon, Kosher salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg. Put the pistachios and pecans with ½ cup of flour in a separate bowl.
In a separate mixing bowl, mix the butter and sugar. Then add in the egg and vanilla. Ensure that the mixture is light and fluffy, then add in the flour mixture. Add the nuts and then add the fruit. Scoop the cookie dough onto a non-stick baking sheet so that they’re evenly spaced. Bake for about 15 minutes. Let them cool and enjoy!
