These are a rich, really delicious cookie. The addition of tofutti cream cheese makes all the difference!

1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, room temperature
¼ cup (2 tablespoons) tofutti cream cheese
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
2-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup toasted chopped pecans

In a large bowl, cream the margarine and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. On low speed, add flour, baking powder and baking soda until thoroughly incorporated. Stir in oats and nuts. Cover bowl and refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours and up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until lightly browned. Let rest for 2 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to finish cooling.
