cranberry white chocolate chip cookies : a recipe

Baking is one of those things that just makes me happy. Bread, cookies, cake ... anything. I love mixing the ingredients together and I love the smell that dances through the house as the cookies/bread/cake bake away in the oven. One of Landon's favorite cookies are cranberry white chocolate chip cookies. One of my favorite things about making them? I can roll the dough into little balls and freeze the dough for those days I just need a cookie -or two. I was first introduced to these yummy little treats by my mother-in-law who brought them with her on one of her visits to our house. We were very thankful and our lives were forever changed. Since I can't bring you a plate of freshly baked cookies I thought I'd at least share they yummy recipe with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

3/4 cup shortening or butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 3/4 cups oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
