This is not the recipe I was originally planning to post today, but a killer migraine last night defeated my attempts to make French Macarons. I had already made and photographed these cookies, so they moved up in the line. My family dubbed these cookies “Balls of Heaven.” They quickly disappeared, leaving no trace.
This recipe makes a TON of cookies. I had about 3 dozen from my batch and made them a little bigger than the recipe originally called for.
4 c chopped pecans
2 c Graham Cracker crumbs
1 c candied cherries
1 c candied pineapple
4 1/2 c mini marshmallows
1/2 c evaporated milk
1/4 c butter
2 c coconut flakes
In a large bowl, mix together the pecans, graham cracker crumbs, cherries and pineapple.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter, marshmallows and milk, stirring constantly. Pour over the pecan mixture and stir together.
Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in the coconut flakes. You’ll need to wash your hands frequently, as this step is quite messy.
Line up the cookies on wax paper and allow to harden. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!
