Oatmeal Cookies for Dad....

This recipe is from the "Joy of Cooking" cookbook.
But it is posted here with my tweaking.
Preheat the oven to 350 and get the butter and eggs out of the refrigerator to come to room temperature.
Whisk together in a bowl:
1 3/4 c Flour
3/4 t Baking soda
3/4 t Baking powder
3/4 t Salt
1/2 t Cinnamon and 1/2 t Nutmeg (this time I used 1tea each- a cross between spice cookies & oatmeal cookies)

In another bowl, beat until well blended:
1 stick of Butter AND 3 1/2 oz (1/2 c) Coconut oil--melted
1 c Sucanat (or brown sugar) (...You can put in an extra 1/2 cup of sugar, but we did not think that they needed that...)
2 Eggs
2 1/2 t Vanilla and 1/4 t of Butter flavoring
Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until smooth.
Add 3 1/2 c old fashioned rolled oats,
and 1/2 c pecans
Scoop tablespoons-full of cookies onto a greased baking sheet, space them 2 inches apart, pat them so they are flatter, and bake for 6-9 minutes, rotating the pan for even browning.
~Happy Eating!
