Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter (at room temperature)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups 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 (8 ounce)


Preheat oven to 350 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.


Makes about 3 dozen cookies.


NOTE: For 6 dozen smaller cookies, use 2 tablespoons dough for each. Bake at 350 F for 15 to 18 minutes.

Notes

Think what you want about her, her husband, or politics in general - but this lady makes ONE MEAN chocolate chip cookie! This recipe was a hit last Christmas, and is definitely on my list to make again this year! I also left out the pecans and it was just as delicious.

It yields a lot of cookies, so I wound up freezing half the dough.
