Dad's Cookies

I found this recipe in an old cookbook of my mother's.  It must be at least 40 years old! It's very similar to the iconic 'Dad's Cookies' found at the grocery store today, but much tastier!  

Stack of homemade Dad's Cookies. Filled with Oatmeal and coconut

An old simple recipe worth making! 

Makes 16 cookies

1 cup butter

2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups oats
2 cups coconut

Mix all together and drop by teaspoon on to a greased cookie sheet.  Press with a fork dipped in cold water.  Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
