  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed

Preheat the oven to 400 oF.  Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.  Spread the oats and coconut on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.   

With an electric mixer, cream the butter or margarine and both sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, then the milk and vanilla.  Sift over the dry ingredients and fold in.  Stir in the oats and coconut.  Drop spoonfuls of the dough 1-2 inches apart on the prepared sheets and flatten with the bottom of a greased glass dipped in sugar.  Bake until golden, 8-10 minutes.  Transfer to a rack to cool.
