Christmas Cookies ~ Coconut Cherry Drops

My second recipe of family favorites.  The marachino cherries added give these cookies a very festive color.


Sift together:  1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon backing powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Set aside

Cream together:  1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup shortening, 1/2 cup sugar.   Cream well

Then add to creamed mixture:  1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. 

Slow blend in the dry ingredients.

Add:  1/2 cup chopped marachino cherries, 1 cup chopped walnuts, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1 cup coconut.

Drop on greased baking sheet and bake at 375 for approximately 10 - 12 minutes.
