Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup raisins (I use CRAISINS for extra cranberry oomph, its a nice change!)
1 cup coarsely chopped fresh or frozen cranberries (I use fresh)
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 package (12 ounces) vanilla chips

In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture. Stir in oats, raisins, cranberries and orange peel. Stir in vanilla chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
