DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the butter, margarine and sugar together.
  • Add vanilla and the eggs one at a time until well blended.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and add to egg mixture.
  • Stir until mixed well.
  • By hand, stir in the coconut flakes, chopped pecans, oatmeal and sliced gumdrops until just mixed.
  • Refrigerate the dough until it is thoroughly chilled (at least 3 hours).
  • (Chilling the dough will help the cookies keep their shape).
  • Once the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Take a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball about the size of a walnut.
  • Place on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet about 6 inches apart.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until light brown.
