Swedish Christmas Cookies

These cookies are delicious for anyone who loves coconut. Though they pressed together a bit dryly (might add more shortening next time...) they managed to make it out of the oven just fine. I got this recipe from Serious Eats though I have eaten many different variations of this cookie in the past. 


1 cup sugar (plus sugar for rolling)
1 cup shortening or butter
1 egg
2 cups flour
½ tsp cream of tartar
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
1 1/3 cups coconut
Candied cherries


1.       Mix everything together but the cherries
2.       Roll into small balls, dip into sugar, press candied cherry into top
3.       Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes
