Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been saving an empty crasins bag for a while now with every intent to
make these cookies. I completely forgot about them until I saw them on 
LovesToEat's blog a few days ago. I was nervous about trying another new recipe for cookies since last week's cookies were a flop. I was even more nervous after I mixed everything together. The batter was very sticky, almost too wet. I was sure these were going to be another fail. Boy, was I wrong. They came out perfect. Chewy and delicious. My husband declared these his new favorite.
