One of the easiest biscuit recipes I know these tasty coconut and oat biscuits are regularly cooked in our house.
This recipe has been used in my family for generations with a slightly different variation. We use either shortening or butter and add one (1) addtional cup of oatmeal. We also roll the dough into "logs" (about 2" x 6") then chill for about 1 hour. Then slice into 1/4" thick cookies. Either way, an absolute winning recipe. - 05 Jul 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These were absolutely delicious Darlene! Because some reviewers complained about their cookies coming out flat, I used heaping teaspoons of the baking soda and baking powder. I added chocolate chips to the mix and made rather large cookies that took about thirteen minutes to bake. Like others stated, even if the cookies don't appear to be done, take them out anyway and let them set up. Thanks for a terrific recipe! - 31 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These cookies ROCK! This is an awesome recipe and you can mix it up a bit if you want! I added Chocolate Chips, Butterscotch Chips for more flavor. Be careful not to overbake - it's easily done.. I have made these twice in two weeks, once family came over a devoured them ALL! These are going on my Christmas cookie list. - 07 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
