Oatmeal-walnut-cranberry cookies

I made these as welcome cookies for our family who arrived this week to spend Easter weekend at our house! They arrived from the airport late and jetlagged, so I had a nice squash soup and these comforting cookies. They are easy, tasty, and wonderfully wholesome treats!

Ingredients
1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tspn vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup (toasted and ground) walnuts
1/2 tspn salt
1 tspn baking soda
1 tspn cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries


What to do?
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Combine dry ingredients. Add to butter mixture and stir until blended. Add dried cranberries (I soak the cranberries for about 30 minutes to plump them). Drop by teaspoon onto parchment covered baking sheet. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool. 
(The original recipe, which I tweaked, came from http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/oatmeal-cranberry-cookies-recipe/index.html).
