My grandma's recipe for cookies that are always a hit. My grandma was one of the best cooks I have ever known; she taught me much of what I know about cooking. I love her and still miss her.
- 1 cup shortening or 1 cup margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 cups chopped nuts
- 3 cups quick oats
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup shredded coconut, well packed
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream shortening or margarine and sugars.
- Mix in eggs and vanilla.
- Sift flour, salt, and soda, and fold into creamed mixture. (I like to plump my raisins before adding them. If you do, do not sift the flour.).

- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
