Santa's Whiskers

I am sure all of you have heard of this recipe, not me. I usually have heard of ALL cookie recipes because I LOVE cookies!! I am a Cookie Monster for sure! A friend of mine mentioned these on Facebook and I could not wait to hear what they were. Were they white chocolate covered pretzels I thought? Never in a million years would I have guessed what they were. These are really good and a very pretty cookie too! This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek in this New Year!


1 cup butter-room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 T milk
1 t vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 cup chopped red candied cherries
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Cream together butter and sugar (make sure butter is at room temperature). Mix in vanilla. Now stir in flour, cherries and nuts. Form in to one long roll and roll in coconut. Now wrap in plastic wrap. Place in fridge overnight. Remove from fridge and slice into 1/4 inch thick slices. Bake at 325' for 12 minutes or until golden.
