  • Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Place cookie sheet in the middle of the oven. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 7 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are set. Do not over bake. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

  • To Make Frosting: Begin by combining evaporated milk, white sugar, 1/4 cup shortening, and egg yolks in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until thickened. Remove pan from heat. Stir 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, pecans, and coconut into the warm mixture. Cool completely, and frost cooled cookies.
