  • Heat oven to 375 F.

  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

  • In a second large bowl, cream butter. Add both sugars; beat until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. Add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in oats, prunes, nuts and chips.

  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Allow to cool completely on wire racks. Repeat with remaining dough.

  • Dust cooled cookies with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
