Spicy Oatmeal Cookies


Our favourite office baker makes us a treat every Thursday. The following recipe was our morning snack a couple weeks ago, and everyone loved them. Buttery oatmeal cookies with chewy coconut and the spice mix that everyone loves. She kindly shared her recipe with me to share with all of you.
