100 Good Cookies
Posted for :contest COOKIES
I got this recipe from DH's grandmother. I have no idea how it got the title 100 good cookies. I once took a plate of these to a man who had terminal throat cancer. He asked his wife to request that I make more of them for him as it was all that tasted good to him in his final days. I gladly took him an ice cream pail full. He wrote me the nicest thank you. A few weeks later he went home to heaven.

1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup cooking oil ( scant cup)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup rice krispies
1 cup coconut
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup chopped walnuts
3 1/2 cups flour
