Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Christmas is just around the corner and the baking season has begun.  The cookie’s tart flavor of cranberries comes from both dried and fresh cranberries, sweetened by the addition of white chocolate chips and is oh so delicious.   This cookie keeps well, freezes well, holds together during shipping and tastes fantastic.  These are the cookies we leave out for Santa……if there’s any left.
