While looking at other food blogs I can't help but want to make everything I see because they all look so good!!! This is one of the recipes, so I decided to give it a try. I found this recipe on Cafe Zupas!
Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
makes 48 cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 cups oats
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 well-beaten eggs
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Grease a cookie sheet; set aside. Preheat oven to 375F.
In a medium saucepan combine butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until melted. Remove from heat. Add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined. Add eggs; mix well. Stir in white chocolate chips and cranberries.
Drop batter by rounded teaspoons 3 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet, stirring the batter often.
Bake for 6 to 7 minutes or until edges are firm. (The first batch always seems to take a little longer so make sure you check them before you take them out.) Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
