Another cookie recipe!

In the spirit of baking I am posting another cookie recipe handed down from my grandmother. I have no idea how old this recipe is but it is a keeper for sure :) Enjoy!

Grandma’s Coconut Cookies

½ C Butter
½ C Shortening
1 C brown sugar
1 C white sugar
2 eggs
1 ½ C coconut
1 ½ C oatmeal
1 ¾ C flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. soda
1 t. vanilla

Mix shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Add coconut, oatmeal, and flour, mix well. Add baking powder and soda. Mix well and drop by spoonfuls onto un-greased (preferably parchment paper lined) baking pans.

Bake at 350 degrees until cookies just barely begin to brown. Let cookies rest about 3-5 minutes before removing.

Note: This is a cherished family recipe of my grandmother’s. These cookies can be tricky to make, they are supposed to be a chewy cookie, but sometimes they don’t turn out that way, every time I make them they are different, but are delicious. If the dough seems to be too sticky, add a little more oatmeal rather than flour!
