Italian Macaroon Cookies

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoons of salted butter melted and cooled
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
5 cups coconut flakes
1 10 ounce of maraschino cherries drained and halved

In a medium size mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy.  Slowly add sugar, and continue beating until thick and a pale yellow.  Stir together all the dry ingredients, fold dry ingredients into the eggs mixture.  Stir in butter, vanilla and coconut.

Drop the mixture by teaspoonful onto greased and floured baking sheets.  Top with cherries and bake at 325 minutes for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden not browned.  Remove to wire rack until cool, this mixture makes about 6 dozen cookies.
