These cookies have been a favorite of my husband's since he was little. I have to agree with him they are quite yummy. I hope you enjoy them. One thing, watch closely so they don't over-cook.

Wow!I totally messsed up and forgot to melt the shortening but added a little warm water to the mix. These are the best Oatmeal Coconut Cookies I have ever had. Add some Chocolate chips and it's simular to "Dad's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies" New family favorite. Thanks for the post!
