Hang in There!

Hello all of you faithful Dinner's On Me readers. Sorry about my absence....I promise more posts are coming! Check back soon!

As a treat, and to give you hope that Dinner's On Me isn't's a picture of an old recipe that's a favorite of mine. It's really one of the best cookie recipes I own. I copied this from my friend in about the 4th or 5th grade. Notice my spelling of "sugar" and "flour" and how I dotted my I's.
Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp coconut flavoring
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour (sifted, optional)
2 cups coconut
2 cups oats

In a large bowl, combine shortening, sugars, eggs and coconut flavoring. In a separate bowl, sift salt, soda, flour and baking powder together. Add to wet ingredients. Mix in coconut and oats, stir to combine. Bake on greased cookie sheet (or silpat) at 350 degrees for 11-12 minutes.

I was wondering how long to bake these cookies and at what temp please. Thank you. PS I just love your blog!

This little recipe card looks very familiar Andy. Glad you still have it. They are really good too.

I was wondering why you hadn't posted for a while, but after visiting your other site understand. If you need some recipe ideas, I just tried a minestrone from the Studio 5 website. It was quick, easy, and the family loved it.

Okay, now I understand why the posts have been few and far between the past 3 months. I would much rather have a niece or nephew than new recipes.

Thank you, Liza. I typed up the full cookie recipe underneath the photo, and included the baking instructions. Enjoy!
