Willpower Cookies

Today I share an old recipe from my old recipe box. This one comes courtesy of my working days at the oil company. One day someone brought in some delicious cookies, I begged for the recipe and "Viola"... here it is. They are called Power Cookies but I am renaming them "Willpower Cookies" as in I have no willpower against these cookies. Also, I should mention they make more cookies than should be legally allowed. 180 (that's one hundred and eighty people). Freeze and gift right away. If you are coming over in the next year, guess what cookies you will be eating... that's right.

Willpower Cookies

1. 2 c. brown sugar
2 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. softened butter
1 c. vegetable shortening
2. 4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3. 3 c. flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
4. 3 c. uncooked oats
2 c. coconut
2 c. raisins
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts

Combine ingredients in numbered order.
Drop by teaspoonfuls (or melon baller).
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 min. or until light browned.
Allow to cool 1 minute before removing from pan.
Can be formed into rolls and sliced and baked. Enjoy!

OK, I am just saying, but 180 cookies would definitely not last a year in my house! LOL

Probably not here either EuroMom but I hide them in my freezer (mostly from me) and they last a little longer than the two days they would normally survive outside the freezer. Tee hee.
