Why I Love This Recipe

Looking like colorful Christmas lights encased in freshly fallen snow, these moist cookies are as festive and fun to look at as they are to eat. I make 2 batches, 1 red & 1 green

Ingredients You'll Need

2 2/3 cup flaked coconut (one 7-ounce package)
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped red and/or green candied cherries


Preheat oven to 325 degree F

Grease and flour a cookie sheet; set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl combine coconut and cornstarch. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until mixture is combined. Stir in the chopped candied cherries.

Drop by small rounded teaspoonfuls about 1 inch apart on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on bottoms. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.
