Oatmeal Cranberry Cookie Bliss

Here is another faaaaah-bulous cookie recipe that my family can't get enough of.  I made this for the first time four or five years ago. Another hit at family parties.  This is versatile in the way you can use any nuts and dried fruit you want. Be creative! If you like pineapple, use dried pineapple and pecans, or almonds and blueberries, Experiment!

1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cardamon
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries (or other dried fruit)

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients. Add to butter mixture
 and stir until well blended. Add dried cranberries & nuts. Drop by teaspoonful
onto parchment covered baking sheet. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool
