Rachel Ward

½ c. butter; softened
1/3 c. brown sugar
¼ c. sugar
¾ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
¾ c. all purpose flour
1 c. quick oats
½ c. mini choc. Chips
1/3 c. chopped dried fruit (if desired)

Preheat oven to 375. In mixing bowl beat butter with mixer on med. 30 sec. beat in sugars, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt, and allspice. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour and oats. Stir in choc. Chips and dried fruit. Drop cookies by small spoonfuls about 2 in. apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes or until cookies are golden. Transfer to rack, cool. (I personally separate the dough and do half chocolate chips and half dried cranberries. Both are pretty good.)
