Jude's 1st Favorite Cookies- White Choc Cranberry

I call these "Jude's 1st Favorite Cookies" because they were the first cookies that I ever made where after taking a bite, my husband Jude exclaimed "These are my favorite cookies of all time!"  Since then, he's gone on to say that about 3 or 4 other recipes, so I guess you could say he's a fan of my cookies :)
This is my own recipe, modified from a few I've tried over the years:

White Chocolate Cranberry cookies
1 cup butter, softened**
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs*
1 Tblsp vanilla extract
2 2/3 cup flour
1  12oz package white chocolate chips
1  16oz package dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 375

Mix butter on medium speed till light & fluffy.
Add brown & white sugars, baking soda, salt. Mix until combined.
Beat in eggs & vanilla.
Add flour a little at a time, mixing as you go, until all flour has been mixed in.
Stir in white chocolate & cranberries.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto un-greased baking sheet.
Bake for roughly 8-10 minutes, depending on your oven.
(Mine baked for 9 min 30 seconds)

*a note about the eggs- it's best to let your eggs sit out for about 30 minutes before using them. 
They should be room temperature when you add them in, it gives them more volume when beaten and makes for a lighter bakes good.

**This recipe (like most) can be easily veganized if you so desire.  just replace the butter with Earth Balance, and use your favorite egg replacer.  T
