Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Oh Lawdy have mercy!! These may be the best cookies I have ever put in my mouth! The combination of the white chocolate chips and the cranberries...mixed with the oatmeal and cinnamon....pure heaven. This dough was extremely firm....but well worth the effort. Thank you "lilcrablegs" on the nest for sharing this great recipe!

3 eggs, well beaten
1 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup (2 sticks) butter at room temp.
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups oatmeal (not quick oats)
1 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine eggs, dried cranberries, and vanilla and let stand for 1 hour, covered with plastic wrap.

Cream together butter and sugars. Add flour, salt, cinnamon, and soda to sugar mixture. Mix well. Blend in egg-cranberry mixture and oatmeal. Dough will be stiff. Fold in the white chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto un-greased cookie sheet or roll in small balls and flatten slightly on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
