Posted: Friday, September 03, 2004

"This is what we serve Santa for snack. The kids have a great time trying to make the 'whiskers' stick to the dough."

1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup finely chopped green and red candied cherries

1/2 chopped pecans (optional)

3/4 cup flaked sweetened coconut

Preheat oven 375 F.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Blend in milk and vanilla. Stir in flour, cherries and nuts. Mix well. Form dough into a 2-inch thick log.

On a clean surface, spread a layer of coconut. Roll the cookie log in coconut. Slice 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes three to five dozen, depending on thickness.
