“A hint of coffee flavour enhances the spiciness in these big, crunchy cookies.”

  • ¾ c. shortening
  • 1 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 ½ c. rolled oats (quick, not instant)
  • 1 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. ground coffee
  • ½ tsp. each baking soda, salt, cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp each nutmeg and allspice
  • 1 c. raisins or chocolate chips (or half of each)
  • ½ c. chopped pecans

In large bowl, cream together shortening and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, coffee, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice; mix thoroughly. Stir into creamed mixture. Stir in raisins and pecans. Shape dough into balls about 2 inches in diameter. Place about 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Flatten each to ½ inch thickness. Bake in 350 oven for 12 to 14 mins or until golden brown (don’t overbake). Let cool a few minutes on baking sheets, then remove to rack to cool completely. (May be wrapped airtight and stored up to 2 days or frozen).
