"Don't even think that you can eat only ONE! Boy, are these cookies fabulous! They are so moist and chewy. If you prefer a crisper cookie, just bake for a couple of minutes longer. These are great cookies to send overseas to our troops."

Beat in flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and rolled oats until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the butterscotch chips and coconut. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto baking sheets.
  3. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven just until the bottoms are light brown, 7 to 8 minutes. If you prefer crunchier cookies, bake 9 to 10 minutes.
