1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat an oven to 165 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with paper.

In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate large bowl, mix the butter, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir in the flour mixture; gently stir in the oatmeal and pecans and lightly mix until combined.
