Christmas Treats Day 16: Coconut Cherry Drops

These cookies are another of my favorites. They taste great and are super easy to make.

1¼ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
1 cup flaked coconut
½ cup pecans
¼ cup chopped maraschino cherries, drained

In large bowl, combine all ingredients except coconut, pecans, and cherries. Blend well with mixer. Stir in remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Cool.

Yields: 2-3 dozen
