1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 large eggs
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb orange slice candy
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup rolled oats

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside.

In large mixing bowl cream the brown sugar, shortening, and eggs together until light and fluffy.

In a separate bowl, combine the sifted flour with the baking soda and salt; blend into the creamed mixture.

Dice the orange slice candy; mix with the 1/2 cup flour.  Add candy to the cookie mixture.  Stir in the coconut, nuts, and oats.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared cookie sheets.  Press each ball lightly with a fork to form criss-cross pattern, if desired or lightly with back of large spoon.

Bake at 325 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
