Oatmeal Coconut Cookies (sweet far west cookies)

Baking was not a common practice at my house, instead, I enjoyed the baking happening at the Little House on the Prairie TV series. Yes, that dates me, ha!  Anyhow, I have added to this recipe my three most favorite ingredients I absolutely love in cookies; coconut flakes, chocolate chips, and walnuts, and of course, I have removed the ones I hate on common oatmeal cookies, RAISINS!

I hope you love them!

1 cup of light brown sugar

½ cup white cane sugar

2 big eggs
