MainRecipesCookies | Chocolate Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

   Chocolate Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies submitted by Mom Johnson
These are pretty yummy - even my non-oatmeal-liking husband gave them a "thumbs-up"!

Heat oven to 375 degrees and spray baking sheets with a non-stick spray or use parchment paper. Beat shortening, sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl until creamy. Beat in the eggs and the vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. Beat into the shortening mixture until blended. Stir in the oats, cranberries, chocolate and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on sheets for about 2 minutes then on cooling racks till cooled completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

(Substitute dried cherries, blueberries, curants, M&M's or white chocolate chips if desired.)
