Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

From Alder Lake Cranberries
On a recent shopping trip in Boulder Junction, WI, we stopped at a store that had food samples to taste. What better than food to go with shopping! One of the items tasted were these cookies, and I fell in love at first bite!

1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 C old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C dried cranberries (1 6oz bag of Craisins worked perfectly)
1 C white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover two cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt, stir in oats and set aside. With a mixer, beat butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add honey and vanilla, beat until blended. Add the flour mixture in two additions, beating until well combined. Stir in cranberries and chips. Drop by heaping tablespoons about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake until the centers of the cookies are soft, about 9-11 minutes.
