If you like coconut and maraschino cherries, you're bound to love these delightful little cookies. They come out delicious and they make a pretty presentation.

These were good. They could have used just a little more flavoring. Maybe some of the juice out of the cherries or something. Still, very good and we enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
