My Great Grandma Edna had a covered cake plate sitting on her kitchen table. The plate always had some sort of sweets sitting under the worn glass lid; sometimes store bought and sometimes homemade. One of the goodies my brother and I fondly remember was her homemade orange slice cookies. These cookies are different, but the orange slices, coconut and oatmeal make them scrumptious.

Orange Slice Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

A pinch of salt

1 cup coconut

1 1/2 cup orange slices, chopped

2 cups quick cooking oats

Preheat oven to 350 F

Cream together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly beat in flour mixture to creamed ingredients. Stir in coconut, orange slices, and oats until combined. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and as always Enjoy!
