Dishpan Cookie Recipe Tips

  • Generally, you can find grated coconut in the cooler section of the grocery store, however if you are feeling quite resourceful you can use a fresh coconut and then grate the meat of the coconut to equal ½ cup.
  • Granny generally has the kids crush the two cups of cornflakes after putting them in a gallon size freezer bag or even in a bowl for clean hand crushing the cornflakes.
  • You can serve these hot with a cold glass of milk for a great holiday treat. You can also line some boxes or decorative holiday tins with parchment or butcher paper and then seal them up for those on your holiday gift-giving list.

Using Dishpans

If you do not use an electric mixer, you might need a large dishpan like this one to make this holiday recipe.Since, there are so many ingredients for making these types of cookies there is more room to maneuver while mixing them up in such a dishpan. This is the old-fashioned way to make them.

However, if you have an electric mixer with the capacity of accommodating the amount of ingredients you will include in this recipe, you should feel free to use it. Mixing them in a dishpan is the only way mother makes them and the only way I've seen them made.

An even larger mixer for large batches of goodies.

 

Creating Deliciousness

Holiday cookies are something that everyone enjoys and generally looks forward to making, eating, giving and receiving. I know from experience that many people will ask if we've made any more cookies even when it's not Christmas. Sometimes, the kids are able to talk Granny into making a batch of her cookies at different times of the year. So these cookies are great anytime and not just during the holidays.

However, if you are into cookie exchanges during the holidays, you might like to make a big batch of these delicious treats to exchange with anyone else who attends or joins in the fun of such an exchange of goodies.

You might choose to make them in a dishpan just as mother does. On the other hand, you can also mix them up while using a large capacity standing electric mixer much like this mixer. This is one I like and have included on my wishlist.
