Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe sure was intriguing to me. The fruit and the white chocolate chips caught my eye and I couldn't wait to try it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find dried peaches so I used dried apricots and the cookies still turned out wonderfully. I also saw some dried blueberries on the shelf... Maybe next time!

NOTE: Debbie's directions call for butter, but a specific amount isn't given. I used 1/2 cup and it worked great.
