    3 1/2  cups          almond paste
    1      cup           all-purpose flour

 In a food processor or blender, process coconut until finely
 chopped; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat almond paste until crumbled. Gradually
add flour, sugar and coconut; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time;
 beat until smooth. Stir in nuts. Place dough in a pastry bag with a large star
tip; pipe onto baking sheets covered with parchment paper or foil. Top with
cherries. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
