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.
  3. 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 :)

They were not bad, but not a lot of flavor and too soft.

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

Yum! These are great cookies. I can't possible see how the recipe can be tweaked at all. They're perfect just the way they are! Thanks for sharing!

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.

Very yummy recipe. I used orange extract instead of zest and they still taste great! Love the texture too.
