Very good. I cut the flour to 3cups. & Added 12/ cup more of apricot.

Great Apricot flavor

They are great with vanilla ice cream. A bit too crumbly to eat on their own. And a bit dry without ice cream. The apricots are good in them though.

This was good but needed something the taste was a little flat. I added more jam and that helped

These were tasty, though I agree they were a little dry. I also sprinkled cinnamon on top of the second layer of dough. I brought them to work and the guys ate 'em up!
