1/2 C butter
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar

1 1/4 C quick oats
1 1/2 C flour

Add eggs, vanilla and oats.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder.
Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients and blend.

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, cookies are done when they barely start to brown on top.
