 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          unsalted butter, softened
    1      cup           granulated sugar
    1      cup           firmly packed dark brown sugar
    3      large         eggs
    2      teaspoons     vanilla
    2 3/4  cups          all purpose flour
      3/4  teaspoon      baking powder
    1 1/2  teaspoons     baking soda
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    3      cups          old-fashioned rolled oats
    2      cups          semisweet chocolate chips
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
 In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light
 and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in
 Into the bowl sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat
 (by hand) until the batter is combined well. Stir in rolled oats and chocolate
 Drop batter by rounded tablespoons onto lightly buttered baking sheets.  
 Bake in middle of oven until golden, about 10. Remove from cookie sheet and
 cool. Makes about 64 cookies. 
 Note: I just had a couple of these out of the cookie jar. I
 swear they're better the next day than they are fresh from the
 oven. I'll bet these would be a good cookie to pack and mail.
 Drat...she'll make more of these this weekend to send to her
 boyfriend at college, and then I'll have to sample more...
