An old recipe from my MIL Libby.The directions for baking are not here as she used a wood stove. Watch them as I am guessing on the time and temperature. She made these a lot when Rudy was growing up. They are wonderful. She loves anything with coconut. Her Mother kept a jar of it just for her.
- Mix ingredients together.
- Form into balls.
- Flatten balls.
- Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.
These are a yummy, simple to make cookie. I used butter flavored crisco instead of the lard, added 1 tsp. coconut extract and 2 cups chocolate chips. Delicious, thanks for sharing!!
These were great and everyone loved them, and we were all shocked at how big they got! I got almost 3 dozen out of them and in about 24 hours they were all gone. I did add in about a cup of raisins (something in me just has to have raisins with oatmeal) and they baked perfect. Thanks again for posting!
Made these as part of a cookie tray destined for the office and they were a big hit. The cookies are big soft and chewy with a great balance between the coconut and oatmeal. My half batch yielded about 18 3-inch cookies. The larger cookie required about 12 minutes of baking. I replaced the lard with shortnening which is a better match than butter. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
