Yummy in your Tummy Cookies

I have been making this yummy cookie for years. I sneak in oatmeal, oat bran and wheat bran. Whole wheat flour can  be used for 1 cup of the flour.  Instead of dried cranberries you could use dried blueberries.


1 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1  1/2 cup brown sugar
1  1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
3 1/2 cup flour
1  1/2 teaspoon soda
1  1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup old-fashion oatmeal
1/3 cup wheat bran
1/3 cup oat bran
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup  broken pecans

Cream together shortening, butter, sugar, brown sugar ( I like to use dark brown sugar)
and vanilla.

 Add eggs, mix well.

Mix in the flour, soda, and salt. Add oat bran and wheat bran, mix.
Oat bran and wheat bran can be bought at health food stores and most grocery stores. I store mine in the refrigerator to help keep it fresh.

Add pecans, cranberries and white chocolate chips, mix, you may need to do this  by hand.
