Chewy, nutty, fancy oatmeal cookies.
It seems Mom always wanted us to eat oatmeal… we wish she had had this recipe! These Fancy Oatmeal Cookies really hit the spot. I just love the taste of the oatmeal, the pecan and the coconut all mixed together.
I usually make a double batch because they have a tendency to go so quickly in my house! For example, the other day a good friend came over with their young daughter and I felt so happy that I had just made some of these cookies. As we talked and the little girl played, we realized that we had almost finished all the entire platter full!
I plan on making these for our next insidewink weekly meeting. Our meetings are so great and exciting because we inspire each other with new ideas for this site. All that thinking makes us hungry! Beside, some of us have a sweet tooth and these will be perfect.
