Coconut Cherry Chocolate Cookies

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 to 3 T milk
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in 2 teaspoons hot water
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 T salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups flaked coconut
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips, all semisweet or mixed milk and semisweet chocolates
1 cup dried cherries, roughly chopped

Preparing the cookies:
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.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies
