Slice & Bake Santa's Whiskers Recipe


It’s always nice to have a log or two of slice and bake cookies in the freezer. These classic Christmas Cookies, Santa’s Whiskers – named so because of the coconut on the outside of the cookies - are slice and bake. They are also festive, delicious, and make ahead. The rolls of dough can be stored in the refrigerator for a week or so, or in the freezer for 6-8 months.
””
Makes 8 dozen cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups candied cherries, (mixture of red and green)
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
3 cups flaked coconut
  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, powdered sugar, egg, and vanilla until light and fluffy.

  2. Reduce speed to low, and gradually mix in the 2 1/4 cups flour until well blended.

  3. Toss the candied cherries with the 1 tablespoon flour, coating the cherries.

  4. Stir the cherries and chopped pecans into the batter.

  5. Shape the dough into 3 logs, 10 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

  6. Roll each log in 1 cup coconut, pressing the coconut onto the surface of the roll.

  7. Wrap each roll separately in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, or if you're in a hurry, freeze for an hour.

  8. When ready to bake, heat oven to 350°.

  9. Cut the logs into 1/4 to 1/3-inch slices with sharp knife.

  10. Place 1-inch apart onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  11. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

  12. Cool on racks, then store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for longer storage.
