Airy Berry Cookies

I recently got my newest Joanne Fluke, so, of course, I had to try a recipe!  These are pretty good and I don't even like Craisins and honestly I liked these cookies. I think I'd personally like them better with regular chocolate chips, but that's a personal preference. The white chocolate is fine. 

Airy Berry Cookies
Modified from Blackberry Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke
 
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries (I used Craisins)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (this isn't an entire bag, but obviously you can really use as much as you want or even double the recipes to use up most of it)
 
Preheat oven to 350.
 
Measure oatmeal and put in a bowl.  Melt butter and add to oatmeal.  Stir until thoroughly combined.  Mix sugar, baking powder, flour and salt separately.  Add this to the oatmeal mixture and blend thoroughly.   Mix in vanilla.  Add egg and stir until well blended.
 
Mix in cranberries and chips. 
 
Line cookies sheets with foil, shiny side up.  Spray with Pam. (REALLY do this....seriously!!!! I had to toss my first batch because I didn't and couldn't peel them off!)   Leave room as these spread a lot.  I only got 9 cookies on a sheet and I usually do 12. 
 
Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Remove and cool on sheet for 5 minutes then move the cookies ON the foil to a cooling rack. Once completely cooled, peel them off the foil (really you will PEEL!). 
 
I didn't do this, but I could see myself doing it because of the leftover chips.
Chocolate Drizzle
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or whatever you want, but you are going to have extra white chocolate chips....so I recommend using whatever you put in your cookies)
6 tbsp. juice, milk or liqueur. 
 
You microwave the two ingredients until melted, 30 seconds, then at 15 second intervals until melted, stirring between.  Drizzle on cookies on wax paper.  Let harden then store between wax paper. 
 
Makes 2.5 dozen cookies
