Day 4 . . . & December Blog Hop

12/1/14:  December Blog Hop:  Favorite Cookie Recipe

The Lechner Family's favorite Chistmas cookie is called: Church Windows.  I inherited this recipe from my mother-in-law many years ago and till this day, if I ask one of my boys which cookie they want me to make for Christmas, it's Church Windows.  Who knows, maybe it will become a favorite of your family's also!!


 1/2 cup butter
 1 (16 ounce) package of milk chocolate chips
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1 cup chopped walnuts
 1 (16 ounce) package colored miniature marshmallows
 2 cups flaked coconut

Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler or heavy saucepan over medium heat; mix until smooth and creamy; remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Allow to cool then fold in the marshmallows and walnuts.

To the cooled chocolate. Mix. Sprinkle sweetened angel flake coconut on wax paper. Spoon mixture in log form onto wax paper and sprinkle coconut on top. Wrap and refrigerate. 

Cut with electric knife in slices to serve. This is a easy cookie for the holidays and is best to make these when your oven is tied up with other cookies. Makes 3-4 rolls or approx. 36 cookies.
