Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet well with vegetable shortening.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and both types of sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla and then eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg addition.
  4. In medium mixing bowl, thoroughly combine with a wire whisk, the flour, salt, and baking soda.
  5. By hand, add the flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time to the creamed butter-sugar mixture, beating well after each flour addition.
  6. Stir in, by hand, the rolled oats and coconut; mix well.
  7. Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 and 1/2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet. (The cookies will have more of a rounded shape to them if a 1 and 1/2 inch cookie scoop is used-I slightly mound the dough in the scoop).
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep a close watch on the cookies if you bake them longer than 10 minutes.
  9. Remove cookies from baking sheet and cool on wire racks.

I made half the recipe and got 30 cookies. I thought I had coconut but I didn't have any. So I had to omit it. But I want to try these cookies with coconut cause I love coconut. But without, they're delicious. They spread a lot. That gives a great cookie. The taste is really good. Not too sweet even though I may try to reduce the amount of sugar next time.
