These cookies have become a favorite at the Diner. They are delicious and the recipe I have was written out by my dad after buying a few from a neighborhood cookie stand while out yard saling one day.
These coconut oatmeal cookies are chewy yet crisp, buttery with lots of texture.
2 cups butter – bar type (I think this means sticks of butter not a tub)
2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
2 cups sugar
2 tps vanilla
4 eggs – Second Natural (Daddy was on a low cholesterol diet)
3 cups sifted flour
2 tps salt
2 tps baking soda
6 cups quick cooking rolled oats
1 ½ cups flared coconut
Cream together butter, brown sugar, white sugar until fluffy; stir in vanilla, then add eggs one at a time beating after each addition. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, add to creamed mixture, stir in rolled oats and coconut. Drop ty teaspoon about 2” apart. Bake 350º, 10-15 minutes. Walnuts (options, or pecans).
Makes 14 dozen.
