 Ingredients List

  • 12 Maraschino cherries;
  • -coarsely chopped;
  • -thoroughly drained
  • 1/2 c Coarsely chopped nuts
  • 1/2 c Moist; shredded coconut, cut
  • 1 1/2 c Sifted flour
  • 3/4 ts Cream of tartar
  • 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Butter
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Brown sugar; firmly packed
  • 1 Egg; well beaten
  • 2 ts Milk


Prepare cherries, nuts and coconut and set aside. Sift together flour,
cream of tartar, soda and salt and set aside. Cream butter until softened.
Gradually add sugars to the butter, creaming until fluffy after each
addition. Combine egg and milk; gradually add to creamed mixture, beating
thoroughly after each addition.

Mixing until well blended after each addition, gradually add dry
ingredients in fourths to creamed mixture. Stir in the fruit and nuts.
Chill in refrigerator until firm enough to handle. Do not be dismayed by
the stickiness of the dough, for the cookies will be crisp.

Form dough into short rolls, 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap; chill in
refrigerator or freeze. When ready to bake, slice cookies 1/8-inch thick
and place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake on top rack of oven at 375
degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.
