Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This great recipe is brought to you courtesy of my sister. Bonus: this is a one-bowl recipe.
Just look at this...wish you could smell the deliciousness!

Here is what you'll need: White Sugar, Brown Sugar, Oatmeal, Coconut, Chocolate Chips, Nuts, Shortening, Eggs, Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, & Vanilla Extract.

Cream together: Brown Sugar, White Sugar, and Shortening until light and fluffy.

Add 2 eggs and mix well.

Add in Salt, Baking Powder, & Baking Soda.

Add in flour and mix well.

Add in coconut and oatmeal and combine well.

Add in vanilla extract (got my steps out of order, but you should add the vanilla after the addition of the eggs).

Mix well.

Add in pecans and chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Bake and enjoy!

I substituted 1/2 cup Domino Light for the 1 cup White Sugar, and I used Milk Chocolate Chips and Pecans...made medium-size cookies rather than small and adjusted cooking time accordingly. Produced approximately 4 dozen medium-sized cookies.
