Filed under: Cookies, Desserts — blackteapot @ 3:09 am
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tbsp dark rum, or 1 tsp rum flavouring
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped candied red and green cherries
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup coconut

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in milk and rum. Add half of the flour and mix well, slowly adding remaining flour.

Using a wooden spoon or spatula, mix in cherries and pecans.

Roll into a log shape and roll in coconut. Wrap in plastic wrap or wax paper, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, overnight if possible.

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Slice cookies so they are about 1/4 of an inch thick. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart, and bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden.

Transfer to wire cooling rack.
