Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tea cinnamon
1 tea nutmeg
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup Raisins
1 dried Cranberries
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt cinnamon, nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, raisins and cranberries, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
So I made the top recipe for all those who do not like nuts...I mean how can you not like nuts. anyhow, I added a bag of white chocolate chips, 1 cup coconut, a small bag of trail mix, 1 cup walnuts...yep lots of nuts! I also doubled the recipe.
