Cream together butter and sugar. Gradually beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Beat in flour, cheese, fruit and nuts until smooth. Shape dough into a roll, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Cut roll into slices 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) thick. Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper, place slices on cookie sheet and bake 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on a rack. These cookies make great ice cream sandwiches and are wonderful with fresh fruit or sherbet.
