  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. 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.
