BASIC OATMEAL COCONUT COOKIES

I call this recipe basic because it is also good when you add your favorite chips, ie chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter, toffee, etc.

2 cups shortening
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
4 cups raw quick cook oats
2 cups flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Cream shortening and sugars together; add eggs and vanilla extract then beat until blended. Add the flour salt and baking soda. Stir in the oats and coconut.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on pan for a minute or two then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: 5-8 dozen cookies, depending on size.
