Oatmeal Coconut Cookies


This recipe was passed down from my husbands grandmother, to his mother and then onto me.  I have to be careful when I make these because I can't stop eating them and I am not exaggerating! 

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Cream together the butter and shortening until fluffy.  Add the granulated sugar and the brown sugar and mix together well.  Then add the rest of the ingredients.  Using a medium cookie scoop drop onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 on 350 degrees.
