¾ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
5 packets of instant oatmeal (cinnamon/spice/maple varieties work especially well!)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cup flour
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Slightly melt butter in microwave. Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl until well combined. Add baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and beat to combine. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and oatmeal.
2. Drop batter by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving two inches between each cookie.
3. Bake 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Let the cookies cool for 3 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy with a glass of milk.
