Recipe: The BEST Oatmeal Cookies

I really don't love sweets the way I did once upon a time.  I could take them or leave them entirely...except when these are around.  They are chewy deliciousness that I simply cannot resist.
Dawn’s Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla extract
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 -1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans (can be substituted or omitted as preferred)
½ large apple, diced
2 cups oatmeal (not instant packets - just plain oatmeal)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 large cookie sheets. Cream butter and sugars in mixer until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, beat together.
Add vanilla, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the flour.
Mix until well combined.
Mix in coconut, apple, and nuts.
Mix in oatmeal.
Drop on greased cookie sheets by the tsp., spacing about 2 inches apart.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes, just until the edges begin to brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
