Oatmeal Coconut Cranberry Cookies
I remember my grandmother making these and they turned out perfect, but when my mother took over making these cookies it seemed that there were more broken cookies than perfect ones.

I recently found my grandmother's recipe and decided to see if they were as good as I remembered. I used too much mixture per tablespoon when I did the first batch. I baked them 15 minutes and they were done but has spread all over the cookie sheet.
I used a smaller amount of mixture for the next batch. The cookies were too small and when baked 8 minutes were a bit too done. Most of the cookies crumbled when removed from the cookie sheet. They looked more like granola than cookies, but were still delicious.
My third batch of cookies turned out better, not perfect, but almost perfect. All three cookie tries were the taste treat that I remembered from so long ago.
My advice to you is not to attempt this cookie recipe if you MUST have everything perfect. Just go with the flow and enjoy however the cookies turn out. You might try adding the cookies crumbs to your morning cereal, your bowl of oats or cream of wheat, or try the crumbs over a dish of ice cream.
Oatmeal Coconut Cranberry cookies from Mom's favorite recipes
1 1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats ( Do not use quick oats)
3/4 Cup flour
3/4 Cup shredded coconut
1/2 Cup dried cranberries
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick or 1/4 Cup of butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large baking sheets coated with non stick cooking spray.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine oats, flour, coconut, cranberries, pumpkin pie spice and baking soda in a bowl. Beat together in a large bowl the butter, vanilla and sugar. Add the egg and mix the mixture well. Stir in the oat mixture and vanilla. Mix well. Drop by very small Tablespoons onto the baking sheet. Wet your hands and flatten the cookies to about 3 inch circles. Let the cookies stand for about 5 minutes.
Bake 350 for 8 to 15 minutes. Don't let the cookies get too brown. Cool and enjoy.
NOTE: These cookies are like lace cookies and they will spread out like crazy, so space them far apart even after you have flattened them out. Don't let them get too brown around the edges. You want them just barely brown. If you drop very small Tablespoons onto the cookie sheets, check the cookies at about 6 minutes. If you drop large sized Tablespoons of the mixture, check the cookies at about 13 minutes.
