Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

This is a very special recipe all the way from Sweden and my Mom's Mothers recipe.  Enjoy it.   The only change I have made is sometimes I throw in some rice krispies at the end to give it more crunch.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar (can be less)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg well beaten
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • raisins, chocolate chips or nuts are optional
If the batter is too thick, add some milk.  Drop onto a cookie sheet.  Flatten with a fork.

Bake 8 - 10 minutes 365 degrees
