Ingredients
  • Cookies:
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1 cup sweetened flake coconut, toasted
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar, for sprinkling
  • Filling:
  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Directions
  • For the cookies: Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, allspice and cloves in a medium mixing bowl and set aside.

  • Cream the butter and both sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl if using a hand-held mixer) on medium speed until light in color, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat until fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in the oats until just combined.

  • Add the dry ingredients in thirds until just combined, for no more than 2 minutes. Sprinkle in the toasted coconut and raisins and stir until just combined.

  • Scoop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheets with a large ice cream scoop, leaving 1 inch between each cookie to ensure even baking. Lightly tap down each cookie with the palm of your hand and sprinkle with just a pinch of turbinado sugar. Bake for 8 to10 minutes in the middle of the oven, rotating the sheet half way through the baking time for even doneness.

  • For the filling: Cream the butter on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla, and mix on low speed until smooth and creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the second cup of sugar while mixing on low speed until the filling reaches the desired light and fluffy consistency, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • To sandwich the cookies: Put a dollop of filling (about 1 tablespoon) on the bottom of one cookie and place the other cookie right side up on top. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
