This recipe is a drop style cookie, and I use an ice cream scoop to drop my dough onto the cookie sheet ;-)
The house will smell like wholesome goodness while these cookies are baking :-D These cookies are very yummy … and the dough smells wonderful while you are mixing it too!
All around, these cookies are a winner: hands down.
OATMEAL-RAISIN-COCONUT COOKIES ~ 4 dozen cookies (a little less yield if using an ice cream scoop to drop dough)
2 c Raisins * 1 c Water * 1 c Shortening * 2 c Sugar * 3 Eggs * 4 c Flour * 2 tsp. Salt * 1 tsp Soda * ¼ tsp. Nutmeg * 1-1/2 tsp. Cinnamon * ¼ tsp. Allspice * 2 c old-fashioned Oatmeal * 1 tsp. Vanilla * ½ c Nuts (any kind you prefer; or a blend of several) * ½ c Coconut
Combine raisins and water in saucepan; boil for 5 minutes. Let cool.
Cream shortening and sugar together. Add eggs; mix well.
Sift flour, salt, soda and spice together – add to shortening mixture. Add oatmeal.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350-degrees for 6 to 8 minutes (13 minutes if using an ice cream scoop).
