Cranberry and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

So I've made these with dried apricots many times, but I decided to try them with dried cranberries today. Completely different flavor, and loved them. Not sure which I like better. Maybe the apricot because they are more tangy... maybe the craisins because they go from tart to sweet. Now that I think of it dried cherries would be amazing. You could always do the traditional raisin oatmeal combo because the white chocolate still gives it a new spin.
