“These chewy oatmeal cookies are packed with the refreshing flavors of orange and lemon, plus dates, raisins and coconut. When our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren ask me to make "Grandpa's Cookies", these are the ones they're referring to.”
72 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, peels and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  2. 2. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375*F. for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  3. My Note: These cookies just blew everyone away that tasted them. With every bite you are able to something different. I made these as gifts and now it's time for the holidays and I am getting requests for them and the recipe!
