Oatmeal cookies with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips

There has to be a better name for these cookies, but I don't know what it is.  I saw the recipe on the blog of a friend of a friend, and thought they sounded good, but the first time I made them I burnt them.  So tonight I wanted to redeem myself.  I'm not really good at cookies, plus I ruined them once already, so it was a crapshoot.

I couldn't find the same recipe I used before, so I used one from Ocean Spray's website.  Here are the ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 6-ounce package Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
And the directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. 
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks. 
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. 
  • Cool on wire rack. 
  • Makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
Didn't burn them this time!  They are so good!
