3 cups All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 tablespoon Baking soda
1 tablespoon Ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cups butter; at room temperature
1 1/2 cups Granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar; packed light
3 Eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla
3 cups Semisweet chocolate chips
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened flake coconut
2 cups Pecans; chopped

Original recipe makes 36



Heat oven to 350 F.

Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl. Beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in sugars; beat to combine, 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans.

For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake in 350 F oven 15 to 20 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through. Remove cookies from rack to cool.

These make 24 "Texas-sized" or 36 "Yankee-sized" cookies.

Each (app 75g) cookie contains an estimated:

Cals: 336, FatCals: 163, TotFat: 19g

Chol: 42mg, Na: 301mg, K: 166mg

We normally do "healthy recipes", but this one is one of those that are so good you just need to close your eyes and enjoy them. You can do "Diet Penance" later.

Made them today and everyone loved them

Wonderful! I use 2 cups of butter, it seemed a little dry before. I change it up some, leaving out cinnamon and coconut; adding peanut butter chips, chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. Any way you make them are a huge hit!

Love the Cinnamon flavor and the hardiness of the cookie. I will definitely make them again.

Very good! A huge hit! Don't forget to add the baking powder and baking soda since the recipe directions doesn't say both. Also when adding in the extras (like chocolate chips) mix after each addition and add the rolled oats last or it will be too hard to stir!

Great cookies! I have also altered the recipe with success, to make it a bit more "healthy". The substitutions I used were: Sucanat in place of all the sugars, whole wheat pastry flour instead of white, carob chips instead of chocolate. It also tastes good with cashews or walnuts!
