Kristin's Gluten-Free Chewy Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies (or Raisin or Chocolate Chip)

I really enjoy a good, chewy oatmeal cookie.  After a great deal of trial and error, I came up with this recipe for chewy oatmeal-cranberry cookies.  We like these best with dried cranberries, but you can easily use raisins or chocolate chips instead.  We enjoy those, too.  Using oil and butter keeps these cookies moist and with that nice chewy texture that's so desirous in an oatmeal cookie.  They've been gobbled up quickly in this house. Enjoy!!!

This batch I made half oatmeal-cranberry and half oatmeal-chocolate chip
