Santa's Whiskers Christmas Cookies

>> Saturday, December 10, 2011

These are my favorite Christmas cookies, and they’re also pretty easy to make. My mom taught me to bake these when I was a kid.
Makes about 60


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup red candied cherries, finely chopped
1/2 cup green candied cherries, finely chopped
3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 cup flaked coconut


In a large mixer bowl beat butter till softened. Add sugar and beat till fluffy. Add milk and vanilla and beat well. Add flour and beat until well mixed. Stir in cherries and pecans by hand.
Shape into three 7″ logs. Pour coconut onto two sheets of aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Roll logs in coconut to coat. Wrap and chill for several hours.
Preheat oven to 375F. Cut into 1/4″ thick slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes or until edges are browned. Remove and cool.
