Directions

In large bowl of electric mixer, cream together the butter, shortening, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in oatmeal, pecans and coconut. On pieces of waxed paper, shape dough into two long rolls, about 12" inches long and 1" high. Chill dough at least 3 hours, or until it is firm enough to slice. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice dough about 1/4" thick and place slices on ungreased cookie sheets, or lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool. When cooled, spoon teaspoonfuls of icing onto cookies. Makes about 5 dozen cookies. For Icing: Place butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Brown the butter over medium-low heat until golden colored and fragrant, being careful not to burn. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm. Stir in confectioner's sugar, milk, corn syrup and vanilla until smooth. Stir in nuts. Spoon icing over cooled cookies.
