Came across a recipe today in a BC newletter...And thought, I can top that! lol They used a cookie mix and apricots. I am using my own cookie recipe, apricots, coconut and roasted salted almonds.
Sounds better already don't it??? :o)
As shown in my second photo, these are wonderful on their own without the chocolate! :o)

How to Make Chocolate Apricot Almond Cookie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375.
  • 2Cream together butter, shortening, sugar, egg, vanilla. Sift together tartar, soda, salt and flour and add to creamed mixture, mixing until it's all incorporated. It may seem like it will never come together, but it will. :o) Stir in apricots, coconut and almonds.
  • 3Roll in 1" balls, approx a tablespoon of dough. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, flatten slightly, I just use the palm of my hand ;)
  • 4Bake for 10-12 minutes, for a more crisp cookie lean towards the 12 minutes. Remove from oven and to racks to cool.
  • 5Over a double boiler, melt chocolate with oil. Dip half of a cooled cookie into chocolate and place on wax paper to dry. At this time, you may sprinkle with any assortment of decorations. Though I wouldn't use colored sugar as that may melt into the chocolate.
