A simple, yet utterly delicious cookie. They are sweet, oaty and packed full of coconutty goodness. Enjoy with a big mug of tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

so easy to make and scrummy - 23 Feb 2014
This recipe has been used in my family for generations with a slightly different variation. We use either shortening or butter and add one (1) addtional cup of oatmeal. We also roll the dough into "logs" (about 2" x 6") then chill for about 1 hour. Then slice into 1/4" thick cookies. Either way, an absolute winning recipe. - 05 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were absolutely delicious Darlene! Because some reviewers complained about their cookies coming out flat, I used heaping teaspoons of the baking soda and baking powder. I added chocolate chips to the mix and made rather large cookies that took about thirteen minutes to bake. Like others stated, even if the cookies don't appear to be done, take them out anyway and let them set up. Thanks for a terrific recipe! - 31 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
