Clean the cupboard cookies

These have been a favourite cookies since I was a teenager. The recipe comes from a teacher/friends mom from church Robyn Brade. She is a great cook!!!Mine have never tasted as yummy as hers but I can't stop eating them when we have them in the house. Make won't regret it....

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
1 lb. butter or margarine ( 4 cubes)
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs
6 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 cups chocolate chips ( 1/2 semi 1/2 milk)
2 cups nuts (optional)
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut
3/4 cup skor bits

Cream butter and sugar in LARGE bowl. Add eggs and vanilla. After creaming together add your flour, salt & baking soda. Mix well. Stir in oatmeal, coconut, skor bits and nuts. Roll into balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cookies still look uncooked when removed. Makes about 5 dozen.
