Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a favorite. The goodness of oatmeal with chocolate morsels, walnuts, and pecans.

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy;  add sugars, beating well. Add egg and vanilla, beating until combined.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in oats and remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
