Cheery Cherry Cookies... as requested by my Grandma!

My Grandmother called this morning and asked me to email her this recipe...... She said it is perfect for Valentines Day and I think she is right!! It is fun having a grandma plugged in to technology... she is one hip 85 year old even has a facebook page!! I just wish I was in Texas to enjoy these cookies with her!

Happy Valentine's weekend and enjoy the cookie recipe!

Cheery Cherry Cookies
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 egg
2 TBL milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp backing soda
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup flaked coconut

Cream brown sugar, butter, egg, milk and vanilla. Combine flour, slat and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold in cherries, pecans and coconut. Drop by teaspoonful onto un-greased baking sheets. Bake at 375* for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 4 dozen.

Erin.... Another way is to freeze half the dough or bake them all and freeze half the cookies! Efficient Cooking!!!!!! I have never made these cookies... my grandma just knew I had the recipe. I am allergic to red food coloring so these aren't an option for me... bummer because they sound good and my grandma loves them!

thanks heather. i was thinking after the fact that i could bring the excess with me for our bible study as a snack but initially i was a little overwhelmed by how many it made.
i'm also new to freezing anything but bread, meats and fruit. i need to shift my thinking in this area.
