Oops, Forgot One

Forgot this one... I wrote it on a small piece of paper that snuck away from me!

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies (a combo of this recipe and this one)

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
7 TBSP butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 TBSP molasses (If you use dark brown sugar, omit)
1 egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup chopped dates (be smart and buy the pitted ones - I didn't!)
1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts

Heat oven to 350-degrees. Mix flour through cinnamon. Mix butter with sugars; add egg and vanilla and mix well. Add flour mix and stir just until combined. Stir in oats, dates and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonful 2 1/2-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets and flatten tops slightly. Bake 12-14 minutes - let sit on sheet 2 minutes - move to rack to cool completely. Makes about 18-20 cookies.

***These are really good right out of the freezer too!
