My Favorite Christmas Cookies

Ok, so I'm not sure I have one favorite.  But these are up there.  Way, way, up there!

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 c butter
1/2 c shortening
1 c. sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
zest of 1 orange
2 Tb orange juice
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3 c oats
1 c dried cranberries

In a large bowl mix shortening, butter, and sugars.  Add in eggs, vanilla, zest and orange juice.  Mix together flour, baking soda, salt and spices and add to other ingredients; mix well.  Stir in oatmeal and cranberries.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.

This recipe makes around 5 dozen small-medium sized cookies.
