Big and beautiful, this cookie is perfect for the Holidays!
Heat oven to 350°F. (I bake these at 325°F in my convection oven.)
In a medium bowl sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice.
In a separate large bowl, cream together shortening, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine well.
Then add oats, cranberries, and chocolate and combine by hand.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the top no longer appears wet.
Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
