I made these at Christmas, just forgot to put the review in until now. These were fabulous and very easy to do. I made them to hand out in little bags to my co-workers and got alot of positive comments on them. will definitly become a yearly tradition with me!

These are tasty and very pretty on the tray, the cherries turned the dough a pinkish colour - cute! Chopping the cherries finely was a good idea (looks prettier and also made it easier to cut the logs into cookie rounds). I didn't even bother with the pecans, just added extra cherries.

Easy to make and great to eat. We really enjoyed the coconut on the outside.
