1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar, white
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans, finely chopped

Cream margarine and butter. Add white sugar and brown sugar; cream well. Mix in eggs, oats and baking powder. Then add vanilla and pecans. Line cookie sheets with wax paper. Drop dough from a teaspoon onto wax paper allowing at least 4 inches between cookies, as they spread. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from oven. Allow cookies to cool slightly before removing from wax paper to wire rack. (If cookies are removed while too warm they will lose their shape; if allowed to cool too much, cookies will stick to wax paper.) Store in an air-tight container.
