The Most Delicious Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

These are Grandma Cottage’s Most Delicious Oatmeal Coconut Cookies. She got the recipe from Mrs. Cottage’s dear 4th-grade teacher in Louisana. She had given a gift to the teacher and she made a gift of Oatmeal Coconut Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is one of those recipes.  Grandma sometimes added a handful of raisins and sometimes 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. This is a recipe that even someone that does not like coconut (ahem Mr. Cottage) loves.
