So I decided to host a cookie exchange/ Tupperware party this holiday season. I think it is a great way to share a last party of the year with my girlfriends and an easy way to get lots of cookies! What I didn't realize at the time I scheduled this thing (way back in June) was I would be part of a new club also having an exchange. What this means is I have to bake 6 dozen per party! The good news is that it is all the same cookie. YAY! So this is my cookie.
White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or grated peel of 1 orange (or orange extract)
3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
