oatmeal golden raisin cranberry cookies

Got this recipe off of lisi's luscious desserts for oatmeal raisin cookies.  chewy, tasty, buttery and just plain delicious.  made a huge batch an added dried cranberries to the mix. 

2 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups rolled oats (not quick)
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350. 

In a mix master, with a paddle attachment, mix together butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.  Mix really well until creamy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing between each egg.  Put the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl and either sift or use a fork and mix well.  Add to the sugar/butter mixture.  Mix well.

Add the oats, cranberries and raisins.  Mix at a very low speed until mixed together.  Bake for about 10-12 minutes on lined parchment paper cookie sheet.
