    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Prep: 1 hr - Bake: 9 min

    List of Ingredients

    1 cup LAND O LAKES® Soft Baking Butter with Canola Oil
    3/4 cup sugar
    3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
    30 red or green candied cherries, halved


    Heat oven to 350°F. Combine Soft Baking Butter with Canola
    Oil, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in large bowl. Beat
    at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce
    speed to low; add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat
    until well mixed. Stir in coconut by hand.

    Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased
    cookie sheets. Press 1 cherry half onto center of each cookie.
    Bake for 9 to 13 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove
    from cookie sheets.

    TIP: Proper storing keeps cookies at their best. If you will
    not be eating your cookies within three days, freeze them. Make
    sure the cookies are completely cool before placing them in
    storage containers. Otherwise, they’re likely to stick together.
    Keep soft or chewy cookies separate from crisp ones.

    Makes 5 dozen cookies
