Unbaked Christmas Cherry Treats

“My family love these sweet, quick and easy to make cookies. These are one of our favorite Christmas cookies...we hope that you will enjoy them. You will find they don't last long. These little babies are UNBAKED. You make the batter and shape the cookies, placing them in a covered box in your refrigerator until needed. This recipe can very easily be halved, and they also vary well. We sometimes substitute the maraschino cheeries with drained pineapple chunks.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl mix the butter and sugar and juice together.
  2. Next add the coconut and almonds to batter, making sure to blend well.
  3. The cookie batter should be slightly stiff, if not add a little more icing sugar, until they are easier to work with.
  4. To make the cookies, wrap the batter around the cherries, forming a nice ball, then roll the cookie in the graham crumbs.
  5. Place in a waxed lined container, cover and refrigerate.
  6. I don't know how long these last, they always go really quickly at my house.
