I know I should have some heart shaped cookies or some such here to show you today as tomorrow is Valentines Day, but I just don't have them . . . sorry about that! I do have some rather tasty Coconut and Cherry Cookies however! I think that a bite of one of these and you will soon forgive me as they are delicious. It's a recipe I got from an Amish Cookery book and we all know how great those Amish Cookers are. I downsized it as the original recipe made twice the cookies and there are only two of us, one of us being a diabetic. 'Nuff Said.
No point in punishing Todd for my sins. He's not a diabetic. The recipe still made two dozen, even cut in half. I took one dozen over to a friend of mine who just had a knee replacement op and Todd enjoyed the rest.
True confessions . . . I had one, and it was super good. I was glad that I had given half of them away and that I had cut the recipe in half because I know I would not have been able to resist had there been more of them around the house. They are THAT good.
Crisp around the edges . . . chewy in the middle and that cherry on top . . . a sweet touch that looks so pretty and adds an extra special touch for your sugar pie honey bunch. I don't think they will mind that they are not heart shaped. Do you?
