Christmas Cookie Recipe

This is a favorite of my children for many years.  I originally received the recipe while living in Arlington, Texas from a cook at the local elementary.  She called it a " Power Cookie".  I feel it should be called "Everything, but the Kitchen Sink Cookie".  Enjoy.

1 cup Brown Sugar                                 1 cup White sugar
1/4 and 1/8 cup butter                             1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs                                                     1 tsp. vanilla     
1 1/2 cup flour                                         1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda                                    1 1/2 cup oatmeal (not instant)
1 cup coconut                                          1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts                                             1/2 cup raisins

Cream together sugars, butter, and shortening.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Combine flour, salt, and soda.  Beat into 1st mixture.  Add remaining ingredients.  Drop heaping teaspoon on greased baking sheets. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Note:  Pull from oven before they look done.
