Ingredients

2 c
sugar
2 stick
butter, softened
5 c
pillsbury flour
2 tsp
cream of tartar
2 tsp
baking soda
1 c
crisco vegetable oil
2
large eggs (at room temperature)
1 tsp
vanilla extract
cinnamon & sugar mixture
coconut extract
coconut (flaked)
walnut pieces
extra sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift flour, cream of tartar, baking soda & set aside.
2
Cream butter & sugar till fluffy. About 2-3 minutes. Add oil, eggs & desired flavoring. Mix well.
3
Add flour gradually, beating well after each addition.
4
Roll dough between your palms, into small balls. Place an inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Smooch (crisscross) with a fork.
5
Place a piece of walnut on each cookie and sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes -- or until cookies are slightly brown around edges.
6
I usually split the batter in half & add coconut extract and 2 cups of coconut. Roll in balls, smooch with a fork and sprinkle white sugar on top. Another option is just to roll the balls in sugar and crisscross with a fork.
7
These cookies can be frozen in Ziploc bags or stored in tins, lined with waxed paper between layers. They usually keep for up to three months.
