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!

Dad's Cookies

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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

With an electric beater cream butter and brown sugar together.  Mix in eggs and vanilla. 

In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats and coconut.  

Mix into butter mixture.  Drop by a heaping teaspoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Press with a fork dipped in cold water. 

 Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
