I had a lot of apricots on hand and even though we have no problems eating them plain, I decided to get creative today and I am delightfully surprised. :-)

This cookie is what I came up with. They are a little soft in the middle, but have a chewy texture. They are sweet and if you love apricots, you will love these. They would be nice with a cup of tea! They would be pretty with a little dusting of powdered sugar.

Note: I measured 3 cups of apricots prior to chopping. I also used my food processor and pulsed until they looked chopped. It went quickly!
