3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened flake coconut
2 cups chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl.

In 8-quart bowl, beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, 1 minute. Gradually beat in sugars; beat to combine, 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla extract.

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 for 17 to 19 minutes, until edges are lightly browned; rotate sheets halfway through.

Remove cookies from rack to cool.

I am a retired chef and I must say these are the best cookies ever. Follow the recipe exactly as Laura Bush said... I love them.

I skipped the pecans and subbed white chocolate chips instead.

This cookie is absolutely fantastic. I left out the coconut flakes because my family doesnt eat them and the cookie was still fabulous! I am not a huge cookie eater, but I can't stop myself from eating these! It makes a ton so I froze half of these and they still made about 30 good size cookies. Will make these again!

i made these for the first time last month and shared the recipe with everyone I know. they all agreed these were the best. I went to visit my mom and dad in Oregon and hes a diabetic so I tried them with splenda when I was there and they were still really good.I used both brown and white baking splenda but only half of what the recipe calls for (sugar). Going to make them agagin today!

What a delightful and YUMMY treat..will make again and again!
