Grandma Fredricks Oatmeal Coconut Cookies-Family Recipe Friday

Many of the recipes my maternal grandma, Daisy Graf Fredricks, had were without measurements.  Here is one that had the measurements.

Oatmeal Coconut Cookies
1 c. shortening (part butter)
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 c. flour
1/2 T. salt
1T. soda
1T. baking powder
1T. vanilla
1 c. coconut
3 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. nuts

Blend shortening and sugar.  Add beaten eggs.  Sift dry ingredients together and add to shortening mixture.  Stir in vanilla, coconut, oats, and nuts; mix well.

Drop by tablespoons on greased cookie sheets, flatten with bottom of glass.

Bake at 375 until light brown or 8 minutes.  Makes 5 dozen.
