Orange Oatmeal Cookies

1 3/4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups butter or margarine
1/4 cup grated orange peel
2 cups sugar
1 egg
2 cups uncooked rolled oats

Blend the first four ingredients and set aside. Cream butter and orange peel together. Blend in sugar gradually, creaming until fluffy. Add the egg and beat thoroughly. Add dry ingredients in thirds, mixing until blended after each addition. Stir in the oats. Drop by teaspoonfuls about 3 inches apart on lightly grease cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
