3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Cinnamon Sugar:

1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

In large bowl, beat eggs with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in oil and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; stir into egg mixture. Fold in chocolate chips, walnuts and coconut. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Divide into quarters.

Cinnamon Sugar: In small bowl, stir sugar with cinnamon; sprinkle half onto waxed paper. On sugared paper, shape each quarter of dough into 12-inch log. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350 F oven for about 20 minutes or until golden and firm, rotating and switching pans halfway through. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Using serrated knife, cut each log into 15 slices. Return slices, cut side down, to paper-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with half of the remaining cinnamon sugar. Reduce heat to 325 F; bake for 20 minutes or until golden and firm. Turn cookies over; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and firm. Let cool on pans on racks. (Make Ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.) Makes about 60 cookies.

A friend gave me a recipe for what she called Mandlebread which is very close to this one. It doesn't have chocolate chips or coconut and uses almonds instead of walnuts. The oil certainly works very well in this. I make it most every year at Christmas. Lovely little cookies.
