oatmeal cranberry cookies

I saw this recipe for oatmeal cranberry cookies and it seems so very November.
I think I'll try it:
1/2 lb unsalted butter (2 sticks)--if you are vegan just use oil instead
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups dried cranberries ***(but I am thinking it would be better with ripe cranberries)
(I'm also thinking of adding candied ginger to the mix-probably a 1/4 to 1/2 cup)

Cream butter and sugars until fluffy, beat in eggs, vanilla and milk.
In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt.
Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and stir until combined.
Stir in cranberries.
Divide dough in half, roll into a log about 1 1/2
inches in diameter. Refrigerate until firm.
Heat oven to 350, slice logs into cookies, bake
on parchment lined cookie sheets leaving 1 1/2
inches between cookies.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.
