power cookies

2 cups dark brown sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
¾ c. butter, softened
3 cups uncooked oats
1 cups vegetable shortening
2 cups coconut
4 eggs
2 cups raisins
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cups chocolate chips
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cups chopped nuts

Cream together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter & shortening. Beat in the eggs & vanilla. Combine flour, salt, & soda and beat into first mixture. Add remaining ingredients & knead into first mixture. Drop by heaping teaspoons, 2 inches apart, on greased baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven about 8 minutes or until cookies are nicely browned. Let cookies cool on baking sheet about 1 minute before removing to rack to cool. Store in airtight container. Makes 7 dozen cookies. For best results, shape dough into rolls, wrap and chill several hours; then slice and bake as above.

These are the BEST cookies ever!
