C.'s Famous Coconut Chews

1 1/2 cups all-purpose* or whole wheat flour
1 cup packed brown sugar (dark or light)
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts (I prefer to use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips[each 1/2 cup,] it's quite delicious!)
1/2 cup flaked coconut

Heat oven to 350°. Mix powdered sugar and shortening. Stir in 1 1/2 cups flour. Press firmly in an un-greased baking pan, 13x9x2 inches bake 12-15 minutes.
