Oatmeal Coconut Pecan Cookies

Every once in awhile I get in a creative baking mood and actually come up with a recipe worth keeping and sharing.  This is one of those recipes.  Perfect for the coconut lovers in the family!
Oatmeal Coconut Pecan Cookies
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 salt
3/4 cup flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Extra sugar for rolling
Directions:
Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
Cream butter, shortening, sugar and brown sugar together. Add in egg and coconut extract; mix well.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk flour, salt, and baking soda together; add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats, coconut, and pecans.
Shape cookie dough into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on a large baking sheet. Place on the middle rack in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cookies set on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
