Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Beat margarine, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat egg, molasses, and vanilla into butter mixture until blended. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough forms; fold in oats and coconut until just combined.
  4. Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes; remove to cool completely on a wire rack.

These spread like crazy and are very delicate cookies. I use Silpat mats for my cookie sheets and I'd recommend them for these cookies if nothing else. I had to be extremely careful when taking them off the cookie sheet. They are also very thin but chewy when all is said and done--can't speak to how they hold up day in and day out, since I just made them today. However, I imagine they crisp up pretty quickly. I used a small cookie scoop and was able to fit 9 on a sheet but spaced them out pretty well. You need to with these. I also cut the spices by about 1/2--I only used 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1/2 tbs of the other spices and am glad I did. I'm convinced the full amounts would've been too much. I also baked for 9 minutes and allowed to cool on the pan for a few minutes before taking them off. Thanks for the recipe!
