Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

A new year means new recipes.
I know I haven't been posting as much as I use to. I have kinda been in a rut lately. Not a baking rut-just a writing rut. Its like as soon as I open a new post, my mind either goes blank or what I have on my mind had nothing to do with this blog.
Cookies are one of the main desserts in our house due to them being easy to make and even easier to eat.
This recipe was on the back of a package of dried cranberries.
This cookie recipe is different from the usual dessert recipes that I make because it contains cranberries and white chocolate chips.
These cookies have a nice chew to them due to the oatmeal and cranberries. The white chocolate gives the cookies a rich,creamy, vanilla-like taste.
