Serving Up {Cookies}: Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I feel so fortunate to have stumbled across this recipe many years ago.  The recipe was on the back of the package of craisens,  Generally when I purchase ingredients, I already know what I am going to make with them so it is pretty rare for me to even glance at the recipes on the packaging.  I guess this recipe taught me a lesson.  And a pretty delicious lesson at that.

The combination of sweet white chocolate (I like to use the large chunks of white chocolate) with the tart craisen, all in a chewy oatmeal cookie base - perfection!  Go ahead and just double the recipe - I know that I always do :)
