TRIED ’N’ TRUE: Thanks to an old neighbor for this cookie recipe

TERRE HAUTE — A few years ago we had a church meeting for women at Casey Methodist Church.

They always have refreshments in the morning, and dessert at noon. We have a lot of fun and fellowship. I love going to different churches. At Casey, when I lived in Oilfield, one of my neighbors was Louise Burkybile. She had this cookie recipe and it was so good. The boys weren’t heapt up on coconut, but they liked these. Thanks, Louise.

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup flour

1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄2 teaspoon soda
