The red cherries and coconut colors are reminiscent of Old Saint Nick’s beard and suit. I baked these cookies for my children and now for the grandkids.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla or rum extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup maraschino cherries, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup flaked coconut

Directions

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Blend in the milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, cherries and the pecans.

Step 2

Mold into two rolls, 2 inches by 8 inches long. Roll in the coconut. Wrap in wax paper and chill overnight.

Step 3

Prior to baking, slice 1/4 inch thick and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Step 4

Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes or till the edges are golden. Store in an airtight container.
