  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stir into the wet mixture until just blended. Finally, fold in the pecans and coconut. Dough may be a little dry. Shape dough into walnut sized mounds and place 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.

  • Bake for 12 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Cool on baking sheets.

This is a good recipe for cookies full of flavor (and not chocolate!). I decreased the white sugar to 3/4 cup put in 1-1/2 tsp vanilla and used self-rising flour. I also lined the cookie sheets with foil rather than greasing them (I felt the cookies had enough butter in them to prevent sticking) which worked like a charm. This recipe made about 40 cookies for me but I used a heaping teaspoon of dough for each cookie. The dough was not the least bit dry perhaps because I used an extra large egg with just the smallest bit of extra vanilla. A good cookie. Read More

I followed the recipe and ended up with a thin mess. There was nothing dry about the dough! Read More

I do a lot of baking and I have to say that this is one of the best cookie recipes I have ever tried! Very chewy and moist with lots of coconut flavour. I substituted raisins for the nuts and it turned out great. Thanks for the wonderful recipe! Read More

The only bad thing about these cookies is that I don't feel guilty about eating them so it's hard to stop! They're wonderful high-fiber cookies that make a good afternoon snack. Read More

I needed my child to eat more fiber and I've been fighting with her constantly over this. I made these cookies for her and she never suspected my intention. They're great! Read More

Very easy to make and came out great. They're not overly sweet and have a very good taste and texture. The recipe says it makes 3 dozen but I ended up with 5 dozen and that's a good thing!! Read More

This is a great cookie...it has the perfect crunch as well as a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth effect. I used just a little less pecans and it was great. I also got a higher yield than what the recipe says. Don't leave out the coconut even if you're not sure if you'd like it; it's not overwhelming but I think it adds a lot to the cookie. Overall great recipe! Read More

This recipe is wonderful. I made two batches to take on a road trip to my in-laws' house. It took two days to get there and unfortunately the cookies didn't quite make it to the end of the trip. My husband could not keep his hands out of the cookie bags. Fortunately the in-laws were not expecting the cookies so they never knew what they missed. Thanks for the recipe Mary. Read More
