YUMMY this is one of my most favorite christmas cookies out there! It's crunchy on the outside, but soft on the inside. I make them a drop cookie instead, eliminated the coconut, and rolling it into a log and chilling it. I mix them up and then drop them on the cookie sheet. I also gave them more color by using 1/2 red cherries and 1/2 green cherries. Walnuts work just as well as the pecans. Can't wait to make a batch or more for this Christmas season. Santa will just have to find another house to eat these cookies. I don't share them with anyone!
