Cookie Recipe #310 - Cherry-Coconut Drops
These cookies contain just 5 ingredients, but taste like they have much more. So simple to make for a quick treat.
Ingredients: 2 2/3 cups flaked coconut, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 cup drained and chopped candied cherries (5 ingredients, that's all!).
Instructions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour 2 cookie sheets or line with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl combine coconut and cornstarch. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until combined. Stir in chopped cherries. Drop dough by small rounded teaspoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 2 dozen drops
