Chewy Coconut Chippers

Here is a little change from your typical oatmeal and raisin cookie: This recipe features white chocolate chips, flaked coconut and chopped pecans  for a nice, nutty flavor.

Cream together:
1 c. shortening (I used butter flavored).
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar

2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 Tbs. milk

beat well till light and creamy

2 cups flour mixed with
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon

mix well and add:
2 c. oatmeal
1 pkg. white chocolate chips
1 c. sweetened, flaked coconut
1/2 c. pecans, chopped fine

Mix till all ingredients are blended. Drop by Tbs. sized scoops onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350ยบ for 11 minutes, or till they just start to turn golden brown. Let cool for 2 min. on cookie sheet then remove. Delish!
*Tip: did you know you can fit an extra cookie on your sheet by alternating rows of 3, then 2? Fits thirteen cookies instead of twelve. Just think of all the extra time that will save you! :)
