oatmeal coconut cookies

My new visiting teacher delivered some delicious cookies to us one evening (how's that for a good first impression?!) and my kids were delighted to sample them for breakfast with a tall glass of milk.  Here's the recipe!

oatmeal coconut cookies (my visiting teacher Laura Lee)
2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
6 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Cream butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.  Add flour, salt and baking soda mixing well.  Mix in rolled oats and coconut.  Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 325 degrees about 10 to 15 minutes.  This recipe is for soft and chewy cookies.  Do not over-bake.   Makes approx. 4-5 dozen.
