    These are delicious cookies! I did take the advice of other reviewers and I added about 1/8 cup of flour (I used a little less than 1/4 cup total). I also used dried cherries because I didn't have apricots and I loved how they turned out.  -  24 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe. I used white chocolate chip, trhe next time I will ad a pinch of my wife's secret ingredient (ground nutmeg).  -  07 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was really very yummy and an interesting combination of flavors. I used a lesser amount of dark chocolate chunks and it worked very well - any more and it would have definitely been too sweet for me. You can see a picture here:  -  12 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
