Coconut Cookies

Today, we walked down to Albertson’s to pick up toothpaste.  I had noticed in their weekly ad, that toothpaste was on sale for $1.  In addition, I had clipped a 50 cents off coupon from the Sunday paper.  So, after exploring the toothpaste section for a variety that didn’t include artificial food coloring, we took it to the cashier, and paid our 50 cents!

Plus, we got in a nice morning walk, and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine (and didn’t have to pay for gas for the car!).  
When we got home, I spent the afternoon folding loads of laundry, and baking breadsticks and cookies.  
Coconut Cookies
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated shortening (coconut oil could probably be substituted here)
1 cup flour
1/4 cup butter, softened  
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup packed brown sugar  
1 1/2 cups oat flour
1 egg  
3/4 cup flaked coconut (unsweetened)
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350*.  Grease cookie sheet.  Beat shortening, butter, and sugar in bowl until smooth and creamy.  Add egg and vanilla; beat well.  Combine flour and baking soda.  Add to butter mixture; mix well.  Stir in oat flour and coconut until well combined.  Drop by level tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on rack.
