Re: Something to go with Mashed Potatoes & Gravy

A Carmichael/Col Hi cookie recipe to go with your mashed
potatoes and hamburger gravy. My mother, Mary Shibly,
still living on Goethals in Richland, was a cook in
various Richland schools for years. SHE AND HER ASSOCIATES
WERE THE BEST COOKS (and she still is!)!!!


Cream together:
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 scant cups flour
2 cups oatmeal/rolled oats
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon (I use more)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (can adjust to your taste)
1/2 cup coconut (this really makes a difference in the taste)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (can adjust to your taste)
1/2 cup raisins (can adjust to your taste)

Drop on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for
approximately 8-10 minutes.
E N J O Y ! ! !

In order to give the school kids one large cookie, the
cooks used an ice cream scoop to make these cookies.  

These cookies are my family and all our friends favorites.
One of my daughter's boyfriends used to say:  "Mrs. Cozad,
it's HOKY TIME" when he wanted Hoky Poky cookies.  The
next Christmas, I gave him a Hoky Poky recipe in his
Christmas stocking!
