Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the milk, vanilla and baking soda mixture. Combine the flour, salt and cinnamon and slowly add to the butter mixture. Fold in the coconut, chocolate chips and cherries.

Drop mounds of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until the edges are lightly browned, 10 to 14 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes: Don't use butter directly from refrigerator. If you use salted butter, omit the salt in the recipe.

I generally use 1 cup dark chocolate chips, 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips.

    I love these cookies! I saw them a couple years ago on the cooking channel and decided to make them. I made a change to the recipe by swapping out the cherries for cranberries. The salt is fine with me too! I'm making them right now!

    They are really good. The reviews were a help in the salt situation. I added two teaspoons of salt and the dough was very salty. But, after cooking the salt heightened the sweetness of the other ingredients. All that have eaten them love them.

    The cookies were decent, but admittedly a little salty for me. I even added 2 teaspoons of salt rather than the ONE TABLESPOON the recipe called for, since it just seemed like too much salt!
