Butterscotch Oat Squares

This, believe it or not, is the very first cookie I ever baked! I love it so much that I still prepare it now and then. Not only is it delicious and foolproof, but it holds strong memories of my introduction to baking. 

Butterscotch Oat Squares:

2 c. (500 mL) large-flake rolled oats (not instant)
1 tsp. (5 mL) baking powder
1/8 tsp. (0.5 mL) salt
1 c. (250 mL) brown sugar
1/2 c. (125 mL) margarine, melted
1/2 tsp. (2 mL) vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 deg. F. Combine rolled oats, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar. Mix well. Add margarine and vanilla and blend until dry ingredients are completely moistened. Pack into ungreased 8-in. (2 L) square pan. Bake 25 min., or until golden brown. Let stand 5 min. on wire rack before cutting into 2-in. (5 cm) squares. Makes 16 (15 after you sneak the first one!).
