Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

Because Squirrel and I ate our way through Frankenstorm and consumed an entire 9-by-13 casserole dish of chicken pot pie (didn’t want that baby going to waste in case the electricity went out), I felt it was time to create and eat something healthy. So, naturally, I made Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies....
