Swedish Dream Cookies - with a name like that they have to be good.

These little ball cookies are under consideration for my holiday cookie sales. I am not sure they would ship well though.

Swedish Dream Cookies

1 1/2 cups sugar 
2/3 cup butter, softened 
2/3 cup shortening 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans 
1/4 cup shredded coconut 

Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat sugar, butter, shortening and vanilla until light and fluffy. Stir in flour and baking soda by hand. Mix in pecans and coconut. Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or till the edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
