Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

These are some of the cookies that I use for Christmas treats that I take to neighbors and friends. The orange zest in them is so yummy with the white chocolate chips and cranberries.

1 c butter/marg, softened
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla extract
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 c quick-cooking oats
1 c coarsely chopped fresh/frozen cranberries (I use Craisins)
1 T grated orange peel
1 pkg white chocolate chips (I like Nestle white chocolate chips)

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, on at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture. Stir in oats, cranberries and orange peel. Stir in vanilla chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 min or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

Yield 6 dozen
