Cowboy Cookies a la Martina and Evan

Jon calls these City Slicker cookies because what cowboy eats premium white chocolate?
Martina and Evan prefer vanilla chips to chocolate chips (I have no idea why) and prefer toffee chips to nuts. So this is the Food Network's recipe with their requested changes.

1 cup shortening (recommended: Crisco)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup toffee chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, cream the shortening, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and the vanilla and beat until well blended. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add oats, nuts, chocolate chips and coconut, mix until combined. Spoon cookie mixture onto greased foil lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
