52 - Eighteen

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.



Daddy’s Cookies

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).
