Chocolate-Cranberry-Walnut Oat Cookies

These cookies are the bomb!

I got this great cook book last winter that has over 500 5-ingredient desserts. I like oatmeal cookies but not particularly Raisin Oatmeal Cookies. So in this book was a recipe for Cranberry Oatmeal cookies. Great! I love cranberries!

I need to triple the recipe but I didn't have enough cranberries so decided to throw in some nuts and chips.

Here you go....try 'em. They are really good!

3 cups butter, softened
3 cups packed brown sugar
6 eggs
6 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups oats
1 cup cranberries
1 cup semi sweet chips
1 cup walnut pieces

Preheat over 350*F. Lightly grease cookie sheets.

Mix butter and sugar til light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in flour and salt til thoroughly incorporated. Add oats, cranberries, chips and nuts. Mix and drop by tablespoonfuls unto cookie sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes until lightly browned and set but still soft. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: 9 dozen
