These cookies hark back to my childhood, when I won third place for "Best Oatmeal Cookie" at my local autumn fair, at the ripe age of eight. Even with third place, I can't begin to tell you how proud I was, especially with the 25 cent cash prize! Cha-ching!


· 250 g / 1 cup butter

· 200 g / 1 cup sugar

· 200 g / 1 cup brown sugar

· 2 eggs

· 2 tsp vanilla

· 1 tsp salt

· 1 tsp baking powder

· 1 tsp baking soda

· 500 mL / 2 cups flour

· 500 mL / 2 cups oatmeal

· 250 mL / 1 cup coconut


1. Cream together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Set aside.

2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.

3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.

4. Spoon onto greased baking sheet, and bake at 180°C for 10-12 minutes. Let them settle for a good 15 minutes after pulling them out of the oven. If you like your biscuits crispier, leave them in for longer. I often improvise by adding crushed almonds, walnuts, and chocolate chips to the mix. Depending on how much you spoon out onto the baking sheet, this should make 2 to 3 dozen biscuits.
