Chocolate Chip, Craisin, Walnut Pumpkin Cookies

Fall is in the Air...Pumpkin Everywhere. It seems that I can never try too many pumpkin recipes and seems that I love everyone I try. These pumpkin cookies are delicious. They can be served with cream cheese frosting, but they are fantastic just plain as well.

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup cane juice crystals
1 cup pumpkin puree (1-14 oz. can)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour 
1 cup unbleached flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup craisins

* Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets.
* In medium bowl, cream the shortening and sugar. Stir in the pumpkin and vanilla.
* In separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. 
* Bake for 10 min., allow cookies to cool on the pan for 1 min., then move to wire rack
