Oatmeal Coconut Cookies

This is a recipe that I adapted from 'Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook'. The original recipe is actually called 'Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies', but I didn't have any raisins (or chopped nuts or semisweet chocolate chips), but I did have about a cup of flaked coconut, so I decided to use that instead.
