Santa's Whiskers

Here is the recipe. (This is for Aimee.)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup red candied cherries, finely chopped
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add milk and vanilla and beat well. Add flour and beat until well mixed. Add cherries, pecans, and coconut. Roll into 1" balls, flatten with the bottom of a glass so they are about 1/4" thick. Bake about 12 minutes.

This recipe makes many dainty but tasty little cookies. I plan on taking a plate of them to church on Christmas Eve as my contribution to the refreshments for after the service.
