Mann's Cookies

This recipe comes from my mother-in-law. It was a childhood favorite of my husband, so he called and the recipe was given over the phone. We immediately made a batch and they are still a special treat for Dave, because I don't bake often. These cookies are very rich and delicious. I can't remember how many they make, but its a normal sized cookie recipe. 3 dozen?

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sifted flour(?!)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix all together, adding oats, nuts, and coconut last. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Cookies will firm up as they cool.
