This recipe has always been known as Dad's cookies. So with Father's day coming up here a recipe to make for dad.
- Mix shortening and sugars add eggs and vanilla. Mix flour and spices then add to sugar mixture add in oatmeal and coconut. 350 degrees for 10 minutes. These will be a flat chewy cookie.
I placed my cookie dough on an ungreased baking sheet for 12 minutes. I think these are my new favorite cookie!! The shortening (I used Crisco sticks) make this cookie chewy. I loved these cookies. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
