Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies with White Chocolate

I found this recipe in a magazine. It sounded good so I copied it down and did not think a whole lot about it till over the holidays. I happen to love dried cranberries and had several packages on hand so I thought why not give it a try. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
{w/white chocolate chunks}

2/3 cup butter softened

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 6 ounce package of dried cranberries

2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips - optional

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat till fluffy.
Add the eggs, mix well.
Combine the oats, flour, salt, baking soda in a separate mixing bowl. Add all to the butter mixture in several stages. Mixing well,in between additions. Stir in dried cranberries and chocolate.

Drop a rounded teaspoonful of batter onto a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until they are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Makes around 2 1/2 dozen cookies. Can be frozen if you make several batches. Enjoy!
