Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Oatmeal cookies are a cookie that I will almost always skip over. If I am going to eat a cookie I am going to make it a really good cookie and oatmeal cookies never rank really good with me. That is until now.

I needed to take a dessert to a church function and decided these oatmeal cookies would be a good choice, since I would not be missing out on really good cookie. Oh boy was I wrong! These oatmeal cookies are soft, chewy and thick. The perfect oatmeal cookie with the added goodness of white chocolate and dried cranberries. It is the cranberries and white chocolate that make this oatmeal cookie a really good cookie and one that I will make again.
