White Chocolate and Apricot Cookies

I think cookies would win out in all our personal home bakeries as the most baked treat. There are so many great cookie recipes out there and many of them are often just a switch up of a few ingredients. That's what happened in my bakery this past week. I took a chocolate chip cookie recipe I sometimes use and added a wee bit of ground up coconut, chopped dried apricots and white chocolate chips. They'd sell out quickly if it was a real bakery, but at grandma's they are always free. 
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut, ground fine in blender
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cups chopped dried apricots
  1. Cream together butter, eggs and brown sugar.
  2. Add vanilla, salt and baking soda. Beat well.
  3. Add flour and beat well.
  4. Grind up coconut till fine. Chopped dried apricots into small pieces. 
  5. Add coconut, apricots and white chocolate chips to batter and mix well.
  6. Spoon onto cookie sheets and bake in 350ยบ oven for 10-12 minutes if making 24. If you make them smaller to yield 30 cookies or more bake 8-10 minutes.

  1. This sounds like an original. Isn't it fun to take a basic recipe and doctor it to make something unique?!
