                     1/2 cup butter, softened

                     1/2 cup white sugar or granulated Splenda

                     1/2 cup packed brown sugar

                     1/2 teaspoon baking soda

                     1/2 teaspoon salt

                     3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

                     1-1/2 cups quick cooking oats


1.                   In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
