In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in molasses. Beat in egg.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt and allspice. Stir all but 1 cup (250 mL) into butter mixture to form wet dough.

With hands, mix together pecans, dates, raisins and remaining flour mixture to coat; stir into dough.

Drop by rounded 1 tbsp (15 mL), about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets; press to flatten slightly. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until edges are golden, 14 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely.
