“This is adapted from one of my Great Grandmother's recipes, taken from a notebook of my Grandmothers. It was not the first recipe I tried from it as I thought they looked plain and dull. How wrong! These are tasty and easy to make; ideal for our two-person household since the recipe makes modest quantities.”
16 cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly butter a large cookie sheet, or -- better -- line it with parchment paper.

  4. Beat in the egg and almond extract.
  5. Stir in the oat flakes, coconut and almonds.
  6. Let the dough sit for 5 minutes before spooning it out.
  7. Use a melon-baller or spoon to press the mixture against the side of the bowl, then slide the cookie gently onto the cookie sheet.
