December: Christmas Cookies
Dixie EC
1 jar of maraschino cherries
1 ½ cups coconut, plus extra for rolling
1 ½ cups confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
½ cup butter
1 teaspoon cream or milk
Mix butter with electric mixer and add the sugar, coconut, almond extract and milk or cream. Set mixture in refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Drain the cherries and place them on paper towels. Take a roughly tablespoon-size portion of the coconut mixture and place a cherry in the center and form into a ball. Roll the ball in loose coconut. Place the ball on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture and cherries. Once finished, place in refrigerator until time to eat. For serving, individual balls may be placed in miniature cups.
