Wheatena Coconut Cookies

The Altitude Adjustment Section
Let's make cookies, Wheatena Coconut cookies to be exact. I found this recipe on the box of the old-school hot cereal eaten by "Mother of Rula." Full of fiber and with a great crunch, these cookies rule!

1/2 cup butter, room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Wheatena
1 cup A.P. Flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 375. In the bowl of your electric mixer, combine butter, sugars, vanilla, and egg and mix till light and fluffy. Add Wheatena, flour, coconut, baking soda and powder, and mix thoroughly. Drop by rounded teaspoons at least 2 inches apart, onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool and store in airtight container. Makes 3 dozen yummy cookies.
