My Granny made the best oatmeal cookies...thin, crisp, with a hint of nutmeg. I finally tracked down the recipe and made them. Almost as good as Granny's!

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
Add flour mixture and combine well.
Turn onto lightly floured surface Knead until smooth. Roll into a 10 x 12 inch rectangle. Cut into 1 1/4" squares.
