Happy Holidays Chips and Chunks Drop Cookies

I often find lots of baking inspiration over at Bloggy Buddy Liz's site and these Happy Holidays Chips and Chunks Cookies are a good example of that:@) My variation starts with your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (Ghirardelli for us) and then we add every traditional holiday treat and flavor. My cookies have white and chocolate chips, dried cranberries, orange zest, cinnamon and walnuts. Talk about little -something-something- to make a coffee break or tea time special! I also love that the flavors are perfect for Thanksgiving right through New Years Day.
What could possibly make these cookies any better? Well, while really good as is... 
A light drizzle of white chocolate to the tops would be pretty:@)
