Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's another winner from my mom!

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup coconut

Use 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup dried cranberries in place of chocolate chips, nuts and coconut.

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, beat brown sugar and butter until blended. Stir in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy. Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt; stir in chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut.

Onto ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.

Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

3 1/2 dozen cookies
