  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the butter mixture. Finally, mix in the orange zest, coconut, oats and pecans. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges begin to brown slightly. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

One of my new favorite recipes! These are delicious! I didn't have orange zest so I used 1 tsp of lemon juice. I don't know if that really did anything. I also added 1 c of semi-sweet chocolate chips because we are chocolate freaks over here:) Topped with sprinkles to decorate for the holidays. Thanks for sharing:) Read More

I enjoyed these cookies and even had a request for the recipe. Chewy and mild flavor. I might add more orange flavoring next time. Read More

I make these every year for the holidays and everyone loves them!! The substitutions I make are using half a cup of butter and half a cup of shortening this changes the texture and they are PERFECT; also adding cinnamon and allspice. Thanks. Read More

Very delicious. I used Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend in place of regular sugar sliced almonds and a tsp of almond extract. It was hard to tell when they were finished because they stayed soft and didn't brown. They also didn't flatten like the picture. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to flatten them first or not.

These cookies are amazing exactly following the recipe. They are also very forgiving of substitutions and add-ins. as long as you follow the basic cookie recipe you can change your amount of oats pecans and coconut to suit what you lik or have on hand. I doubled the oatmeal and added a cup of chocolate chips to one batch and they still came out perfect. Also these do not require a chilling period before baking- you can go straight from mixing to baking and they come out well. The cookie dough keeps well in my fridge for about four days when I need mix one night and bake on another. Read More
