White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

I decided to make these when I signed up for a cookie exchange at work.  I wanted something different than your everyday chocolate chip and I thought the cranberries and white chocolate seemed so Christmas.  They ended up being such pretty little cookies and they tasted delicious.  I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.  A time to enjoy family and friends, give thanks and eat good food.  So, go ahead put on your elastic band sweat pants and savor every bite.
