Oatmeal White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chris just LOVED these cookies. And what better way to preserve a great recipe than to blog it?! While I'm not a fan of craisins or white chocolate, I thoroughly enjoyed baking with this colorful recipe. It's very simple and straighforward, and pretty healthy too. You can substitute the craisins for cranberries or plain ole' raisins if you prefer.

2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 six-ounce package Craisins Original Sweetened Dried Cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips

DIRECTIONS:Preheat oven to 375ºF. Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in sweetened dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
