Let Me Guess, Pumpkin? Cookies

It's a modified version of my great- grandmother's oatmeal cookies that nobody seems to think are oatmeal cookies. They sure don't have any pumpkin.

1 c brown sugar (dark)
1 c white sugar
1/2 c butter
1/3 c canola oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 c quick oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

While it doesn't hurt to mix dry ingredients separately, you can just add items to the mix in order and make sure everything is well mixed before adding the next ingredient. I personally recommend doing final mix by hand, if only for the excuse of eating dough off your fingers before you wash them.

Drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheets. (Parchment paper is also a good idea.) Bake 8-12 min, or until they begin to darken. Should be about as dark as standard ginger cookies.

Makes a lot of cookies. (I'm never sure how many due to eating a lot of the dough. Possibly 60 of them.) If any break, you are encouraged to eat them, as it does not do to present an imperfect cookie to company. Don't worry, the calories fall out. :)
