Clear-The-Cupboard Coconut, Oatmeal, Pecan Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SharleneW

This snappy little oatmeal cookie loaded with coconut and pecans is from Southern Living magazine. I make them with a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop for uniformity and end up with perfectly crispy/chewy cookies that bake evenly from the center to the edge.

These are up there with the best I have ever made! I won't be making too often because I can't stop eating them. I clearly don't understand reviews like Hazel eyes. She changed almost every ingredient, therefore didn't make THIS recipe. How can you rate a recipe when you made something totally different? She simply needs to post her own recipe.
