Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

I am a cookie snob.  I'll just get that out there now so you all know that bit of information, that being said, I love these cookies.  I have used similar recipes in the past, from the back of certain brand name fruit packages and they were good, but I thought they needed a little something more. A dash of this, and dab of that and the cookies I liked before are now cookies the I LOVE!

Every single bit provides chocolate and fruit, and the hint of cinnamon just rounds all those flavors out perfectly. I love these cookies in the morning because they aren’t too sweet and I can tell myself they are healthy with the dried berries. Oh, I can’t forget to mention you can change up the flavor profiles, use dried cherries or blueberries, or regular chocolate instead of the white. These are delicious!!
