I remember making these cookies often at my Grandma's house as a kid! I LOVE these cookies! This is a recipe from my Great Grandma.
No Bake Cookies
1/2 cup shortening(I use Crisco)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 T. cocoa powder
1/2 t. salt
3 cups quick oats
1 cup shredded coconut(I used unsweetened)
1 t. vanilla
Directions: In a medium saucepan mix together the shortening, sugar, milk, salt and cocoa. Bring to a full boil. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Spoon cookies(1 Tablespoon) onto wax paper to cool. When the cookies are cool and set, ENJOY!
