These were so good I made another batch 2nd batch I colored my coc. red and green mixed them up and rolled the logs in it also used cranberries on the second batch and added ground up coc. chips in the batter. These came out soft and chewy I will use this recipe over and over again for dif. holidays as it is soooo versatile but will keep the coc. on the outside for sure.
This is one of my all time favorite Christmas cookies. The candied cherries make them sparkle.
Great cookies. Have made them before using another recipe. This one is much easier. Am going to experiment with different fruits and nuts.
I leave the candied fruit out, put the coconut in the cookies, double the pecans & dust with
powdered sugar when they come out of the oven. Delicious!!!
Te recipe made about 60 cookies and the timing was way off. Had to cover them with foil towards the end since they were still doughy and the coconut was getting too browned.
