"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

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 butter, room temperature
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
3 large 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

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking pans with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. I an 8-quart bowl or standing mixer, beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in both sugars; beat to combine, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg. Beat in vanilla extract. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Do not overmix. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and pecans and stir.

(Original recipe states to drop 1/4 cup of dough onto cookies sheets 3 inches apart thus creating very large cookies and producing 3 dozen cookies. But I prefer using the tablespoon-sized scoop). Using a tablespoon cookie-scoop, place each ball of dough 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 17 to 19 minutes, rotate baking sheets halfway through baking time, until the edges are lightly brown. Remove cookies from rack to cool.
