I substituted butter for the shortening and toasted coconut for the pecans (since I didn't have any of the latter on hand). Instead of topping each of the cookies with 1/4 cherry, I increased the size to 1/2 cherry per the suggestion of other reviewers. I goofed and forgot to add the 1/3 cup maraschino cherries, so next time I'll make sure to do that!
