Insanely Good White Chocolate Chunk & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

My first taste of an oatmeal cookie was from my Aunt Hazel's
ex-boyfriend's family cook.
We went for a weekend at his family beach home in Batangas.
Those were the best oatmeal cookies I've ever had.
This recipe reminds me of those cookies.
Moist and chewy.
I wasn't sure my kids would like oatmeal cookies
but this cookies are always a big hit that I have to double up the recipe
when I make it.
The sweet creamy taste of chocolate combined with
the tanginess of the cranberries
and a bit of crunch from the oats it just
a perfect blend.
And I'm sure,
 you too will be making these cookies again and again!
