Refrigerator Oatmeal Cookies

I have a cookbook, The Harmony Kitchen Cookbook published by the Twin Falls Chapter of Sweet Adelines, April 1977, that Grandma Birrell gave to me. I thought that it would be nice to post all of her recipes.

1 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup chopped coconut
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift dry ingredients together. Add oatmeal and coconut. Cream shortening and sugar until light. Add egg and beat well. Mix with milk and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternating with milk and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.

Form into rolls, wrap in waxed paper and chill overnight in refrigerator. Slice 1/8" thick and place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until light golden brown.
