White Chocolate Cranberry Bars

Have you already done your Thanksgiving shopping?  Are all the cans of pumpkin puree gone yet?  It seems like every year, there is always something that we forget.  Then we have to fight through the panicky grocery store patrons.  Most of whom, I have to assume, volunteered to cook something they have no idea how to make.

They clearly don't cook often, because if they did, they would know their way around the store a little better.  Instead they are walking around with their chins tilted up as high as they'll go so they can read the signs above the aisles.  
But I commend those who go all-in for the holidays.  Sure, they might not know the difference between baking soda and baking powder, but that's not going to stop them from volunteering.  No one wants to show up empty-handed. 

So if that's your situation this year, volunteer to bring these cookie bars.  They are completely fool proof.  Not that you're a fool :)

1/2 c. + 6 Tbsp. butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. oats
1 c. dried cranberries (craisins)
1 c. white chocolate chips

1.  Beat butter and sugars until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat well.

2.  Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

3.  Stir in oats, craisins, and white chocolate chips.

4.  Spread into an ungreased 9x13" metal baking pan.  Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350˚.
