Dixie EC
2 cups shortening
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons baking soda
1¼ teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons water
3 cups quick cook oats, uncooked
1 3½-ounce package flaked coconut (sweet or unsweet)
1 bag (about 20 pieces) orange slice candies, finely chopped
With an electric or stand mixer, in a large mixing bowl, cream shortening. Next, gradually add both sugars beating at medium speed until well mixed. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. In a large bowl, combine flour, soda, and baking powder. Slowly add by thirds to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in water and mix in oats, coconut, and orange slices. Bump up speed to medium to mix the batter just until combined. It will be really thick. Chill batter for about an hour. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto greased or parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes or until browned. Dough can be refrigerated up to a week or you can freeze unused dough up to 6 months.
