The following cookie recipe was made and shared at my 2007 Holiday Cookie Swap. You can read about it and get other cookie recipes from the event HERE.
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
36 maraschino cherries, well drained
COATING:2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 to 1/3 cup milk
2 cups flaked coconut, finely chopped
Directions: In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, water and vanilla. Combine flour, oats and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Shape a tablespoonful of dough around each cherry, forming a ball. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Combine sugar and enough milk to achieve smooth dipping consistency. Dip cookies, then roll in coconut. Yield: 3 dozen.
