My family really liked these cookies. I think maybe because I used butter and white flour - and I didn't add anything funky!
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup rolled oats, quick
2 cups coconut
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cream butter, add sugar slowly and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
Sift together flour, salt, soda and baking powder; add (stir in) in 4 parts. Mix in oats and coconut.
Drop by teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
