I know statistics claim that chocolate chip cookies are the most popular, and with good reason.  I truly love chocolate chips cookies!  That said, these might be my second favorite cookie…

Yummy oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips and Craisins

Oatmeal, White Chocolate Chip, Craisin Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1  1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups quick or old fashioned, uncooked oats

1 cup white chocolate chips

1 cup Craisins (dried cranberries)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat together butter and sugars until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.  Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.  Stir in oats, chips and Craisins; mix well.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on wire rack.  Makes about 3 dozen.

I apologize for the blurry picture—I must have been shaking in anticipation of devouring one of these cookies!  Enjoy!
