Santa’s Whiskers


¾ Cup Softened Butter

¾ Cup Sugar

1 Tablespoon Milk

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Cups Unbleached Flour

¾ Cup Finely Chopped Candied Red And Green Cherries

1/3 Cup Finely Chopped Pecans

¾ Cup Shredded Coconut

In a medium size bowl beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar and beat until combined. Beat in the milk and vanilla until they are combined. Beat in the flour with the mixer. Stir in the cherries and pecans. Divide the dough in half. Shape into two 8 inch long rolls. Roll in the coconut and wrap in plastic wrap. Put in the refrigerator and chill overnight. You want the dough firm enough to slice. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Cut the rolls into ¼ inch slices. Place the slices 1 inch apart on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes until the edges are golden. Remove from the oven and transfer to a rack to let cool. Makes 60 cookies.
