Cookies - Santa's Whiskers


Back to the Christmas cookie recipes. Let's think about Santa for a minute and imagine his whiskers. This cookie is just a little different and although it is loaded with Christmas goodies the whole effect of this one is the coconut that sticks out of the cookie to give you the effect of whiskers.

Store these cookies in a cool place in an airtight container. Each row separated by wax paper.
