“On a strawberry sundae of a day, all daisies and June sun…”

~John Vinocur

This is my friend Nancy’s recipe. These little cookies are adorable on a tea tray for a garden party or for a children’s tea.

6 oz. packaged strawberry Jell-o powder

1 cup ground pecans

1 cup flaked coconut

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

red decorator sugar

slivered almonds

green food coloring

Combine jell-o mix, pecans, coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Shape into “strawberries.” Roll in red sugar. Dye almond slivers with green food coloring and place in top of each strawberry cookie for the stem.

Enjoy!
