Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or rum
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut


In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add milk, vanilla, and salt. Beat until just combined. Gradually add flour, cranberries, and pecans. Mix on low speed until fully combined.

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into 8-inch logs, about 2 inches in diameter. Roll logs in coconut, pressing lightly to coat the outside of logs. Wrap logs in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, about 2
hours.

Preheat oven to 375. Using a sharp knife, cut logs into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Transfer to ungreased baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Store up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Makes about 5 dozen
