These were very good! I did make some changes, though because I didn't have all the ingredients on the list. I used splenda, walnuts and dried berries (cranberries, cherries and blueberries). I reconstituted the berries in warm water for several minutes to plump them up. I did have to add a splash more milk because the dough was a bit crumbly. Also, I didn't want to wait to chill them, the oven was already hot from baking biscuits. So, I just pinched off a chunk of dough, rolled it into a ball, them smushed the ball flat, patted it on both sides with the cocounut and baked. Next time I'll chill the bowl of dough in the freezer for about 10 min. first because the dough was a little soft, but I managed okay and they came out nicely. I would definitely make these again.



What a nice change of pace. The coconut influence is enjoyable. I didn't have candied fruit in the house, so I just used walnuts. Then after cutting into slices I sprinkled the remaining coconut on the top of each cookie. I also added a tiny bit more milk based on a prior comment. The dough was easy to handle and get into the 3 rolls. I'll make them again.



These are amazing cookies and can also be served without baking. I was given this recipe from my nana, and if you like cherries you will love these cookies!!!
