Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour the nuts out onto a cookie sheet and toast, stir once, this takes 6 – 8 minutes, set aside and allow to cool.  In a large bowl add the shortening and sugar, beat until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs beat again.  Add the buttermilk stir in.  In a separate bowl sift together the dry ingredients, add to the creamed shortening beat again. Add the oats, craisins, and nuts, mix well.  Lightly grease the cookie sheet. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
