Coconut Washboard Cookies
In a mixer, combine brown sugar and Crisco (OR Parkay). Add the warm water, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, salt and blend well. Add flour a little at a time--if it gets too stiff for the mixer continue mixing by hand with a spoon. Add the coconut and stir. Take out teaspoonsful and roll each into a walnut-sized ball. Place balls on a greased cookie sheet. Dip a fork in flour and flatten each ball into an oblong shape. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
