Today was a rainy day. The pleasantly gloomy, growling kind. The kind that needs cold milk, warm cookies, and pleasant reminiscing. So I grabbed one of those recipes and got to work.
Anyway... here's the recipe, in case you can't decipher Grandma's writing (and I won't judge you if you can't!) and in case you want my changes.
Rainy Day Cookies
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup flake coconut
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream shortening, sugars, and egg. Sift in flour, salt, and soda. Stir in oats, coconut, and chips.
Scoop onto ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (until barely golden on top)
Serve warm with a glass of milk. Share cookies and stories about Granny with your munchkin.
