Cranberry, White Chocolate Chip, & Nut Cookies

This is a very nice change from Oatmeal Raisin & it is sure to please!
1 Cup Shortening
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Large Eggs
1 & 3/4 Cup Flour
1 TSP Vanilla
1 TSP Salt
2 TSP Cinnamon
1 TSP Baking Soda
3 Cups Oatmeal ( I use Old Fashion Rolled Oats)
1 Cup Chopped Dried Cranberries ( Craisins)
1 Cup White Baking Chips
1 Cup Nuts ( I used Slivered Almonds but Pecans or Walnuts Chopped would be great too!)
Mix flour, salt, cinnamon, & baking soda together & set aside. In a large deep bowl beat shortening creamy, add sugars & beat again. Now add eggs & vanilla & beat fluffy.  Beat in the flour mixture. Now stir in the oatmeal, dried cranberries & nuts. Mix to combine well! No need to chill your dough. Drop by heaping tablespoon full onto cookie sheets & bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies should be lightly browned! Frost with the following frosting while cookies are still slightly warm so it is more of a heavy glaze! Make the frosting ahead so it is ready to go on the warm cookies!
4 Cups Confectioners Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla
Dash of Salt
5 or so TBS Half & Half Cream enough to stir together into a creamy lightly stiff frosting!
