Green Cherry Cookies

November 22, 2021Teresa

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

Green Cherry Cookies are utterly delightful. These delicious cookies include green rather than red cherries, pecans and coconut. They are absolutely perfect for holiday baking, Christmas Cookie Exchanges or other holiday parties. On top of that, these festive cookies are hard to stay out of!

Paradise Fruit Company sent me a box of assorted candied fruits and asked me to blog about them. I made 10-15 different recipes with all the different candied fruits they sent. I ended up making these cookies and some sweet rolls with the green cherries. We loved them.

Green cherries are marvelous for holiday baking since the colors blend so well with the holiday theme. If you want a treasured cookie to bake for the holidays this year, Green Cherry Cookies should be at the top of your list!

      Hi Claire. You move the bottom rack of cookies up to the top rack and the top rack of cookies to the bottom rack. Hope that helps.
