This new (to me) batch of dough is in my 'fridge, ready to bake tomorrow morning.  I can't wait to taste the results.

NUTTY COCONUT COOKIES
Greased sheets -- 325* -- 18 to 20 minutes -- 4 1/2 dozen   (dough looks like a lot more than 4 1/2 dozen!!)
I always use parchment and never worry about greasing a cookie sheet.
1 cup butter - softened

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 2/3 cups packed lt. brown sugar
2/3 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tblsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups coconut
2 cups white baking chips
1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 325*.
Combine butter and shortening in large bowl. Beat at medium speed
until light and fluffy. Beat in brown sugar and sugar at low speed for
5 minutes.
Add eggs one at a time beating well after each one. Beat in vanilla
and lemon juice.
Mix flour, baking soda and salt in separate bowl. Add to butter mixture
gradually beating continually.
Stir in coconut, white chips and nuts. Drop by tablespoon onto
prepared sheets. Bake 18-20 minutes until golden. Cool 2minutes
on sheet - transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Great cookies - really great cookies!!  Delicious.... and slightly different from other cookies.  Lemon juice??  You sure can't taste lemon juice in them.
But be careful baking them......... the recipe calls for 18-20 minutes and that's too long.  For first batch try 15 or 16 minutes.
And be prepared for big batch.  Using a big, very heaping tablespoon amount for each cookie I got exactly 70 cookies ... not  the 4 1/2 dozen it says.
Next time I'm going to add more coconut -- that's just because I love coconut so much.

Well rats ... Embarassed  ... you all should know never to trust me. Frown
I was just digging through the 'fridge looking for lunch.  Yikes.
I found another plastic wrap 'bag' of that cookie dough.  There was
so much I missed baking a bag.  
So - this recipe produced 83 cookies for me .... not the 54 the recipe claims and not
the 70 I  originally claimed.

When I'm baking I always keep the dough in the 'fridge which will hold 3 sheets.  The
other batches I put in plastic wrap.  This is the first time I've lost a batch.  Glad I found it right now instead of next week.

I'm going to try to reprint the recipe - it's a good one - with the changes.

Greased sheets -- 325* -- 18 to 20 minutes -- 83 cookies for me (dough looks like a lot more than 4 1/2 dozen!!)
I always use parchment and never worry about greasing a cookie sheet.

1 2/3 cups packed lt. brown sugar
2/3 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tblsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups coconut
2 cups white baking chips
1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 325*.
Combine butter and shortening in large bowl. Beat at medium speed

Thanks for sharing Nancy.  I am have to try this but will cut the recipe in half at least.  Wouldn't know what to do with all those cookies (and my waist certainly doesn't need them)  LOL.

These sound great.  I was looking for something new and this sounds like just the thing.  Having a garage sale this weekend and was going to bake cookies for the great friends I have that are going to help me. Now I just have to figure out what to make for dinner so we will have a good, but easy meal when we are done, something that can cook most of the day unattended.  I am thinking Italian Beef Sandwiches, 3 Bean salad and a slaw.
