Amish Wedding Cookies

Bill calls them Amish Wedding Cookies and I gave the recipe to one of his co-workers.  She made them and brought them to work today.  I think that's the best part of sharing recipes--someone else makes them and you get to enjoy just a few. 

Amish Cookies

Mix together:

1 cup Crisco (I use the sticks)

2 sticks butter, softened

2 cups brown sugar

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

½ tsp. salt (a few shakes)


2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

4 cups flour (I do one cup at a time or it is too difficult)

Stir in:

4 ½ cups oats

1 cup coconut flakes

1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they look done at 350 degrees. I use an ice cream scoop to make them nice and big. You can bake a few batches and freeze the dough in balls so when you want fresh cookies all you do is thaw them a little and pop them in the oven.

This makes a lot of cookie dough.
