Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies


Being more conscious about what I bake and cook at home is part of my New Year's plan, but that doesn't mean that some tasty treats can't be made every now and then...especially when they are made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats and cranberries!  These tasty treats were delicious and will also make a great treat for my co-workers on a very snowy Friday!  Not overly sweet, a bit of tang and hint of orange in every bite, these came out wonderfully.
