“I make these every year and tuck them into Christmas baskets for friends and neighbors! Make sure you have a full day to bake as this makes loads of cookies!” - by Esther Nelson
Original recipe yields 12 dozen
- In a VERY LARGE BOWL, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla and milk. Add candied cherries and pineapple, raisins and nuts mixed with flour. Stir in oatmeal and coconut. Make balls the size of a large walnut and slightly flatten. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) one pan at a time on middle rack of oven, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until bottoms are light brown. Cookies will look underdone.
- Sprinkle with nutmeg and leave on cookie sheet for 10 minutes to finish cooking. Transfer to cooling rack. Have lots of containers ready!!

"While these cookies tasted good, I honestly don't think they were worth the effort. Also, the consistancy just didn't seem right, they were too gooey and I was unable to keep them from breaking becau..." See morese of doughiness. I raised cook temperature to 325 and cook time to 17-20 mins and this seemed to help. Sorry Esther!! "
