Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I made these this weekend. I love how versatile this recipe is. When I made them this weekend, I used a cup of dried cranberries in place of the raisins, and added a 1/2 cup of chopped dates. Then instead of the walnuts, I used a mixture of walnuts, hazelnuts and sliced almonds. They turned out absolutely delicious.
