Chunky White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

I am back in the kitchen. After becoming a mom I have decided there is a such thing as Superwoman. I have never seen Superman do a load of laundry, dishes, tidy the house, bake cookies, breast feed while eating a bowl of cereal, and all before 8 am. All I have seen Clark Kent do is take his glasses off and save the world...and he gets all the credit. It's sad to think my son's first words most likely will be "Dadda". Oh well at least I make good cookies.
After short circuiting my oven, I was suspended from baking. So instead of baking I searched out every cookie, muffin, and bake good recipe in my cookbooks instead of baking. This was the first one I wanted to bake since T enjoys white chocolate. As I write this posting I am eating one and just realized "I really don't like white chocolate!" Oh well still a good cookie, can't waste it.
