White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

What the hell could be better than this?
- 1/2 c (1 stick) butter, softened (can use light butter)
- 1/2 c light brown sugar packed
- 1/2 c white sugar (or sugar sub)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 c white flour
- 1/2 c whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/4 c oatmeal
- 3/4 c dried cranberries
- 1/2 c white chocolate chips (add more to your tastes)

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, and then beat in the egg and the vanilla. In a large bowl combine flours, baking powder and soda, salt and cinnamon, stir in the wet ingredients and then the oatmeal. Lastly, carefully stir in the cranberries and the white chocolate chips and then let the batter sit and firm up in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
Use spoons to scoop balls of dough onto greased baking sheets and flatten each ball down a little bit before baking for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are golden brown and crispy.
Confucius say Dunk your Cookie.
