Coconut oatmeal pecan yummies

This has got to be my favorite cookie recipe.  And guess what? There isn't even any chocolate in them,  but there could be....

1 c. butter or marg
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 cup oatmeal
2 TBS milk or cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecans or walnuts

Cream butter and sugars till fluffy. Add eggs, milk, and extracts. Add flour, baking powder, salt, soda and oatmeal. Add coconut and pecans. Drop by teaspoons on cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Don't over bake, they should be soft and chewy.
Lastly, make sure to lick the batter bowl clean :)  Yields: approx 7 dozen
