These are delicious cookies! I did take the advice of other reviewers and I added about 1/8 cup of flour (I used a little less than 1/4 cup total). I also used dried cherries because I didn't have apricots and I loved how they turned out. Read More

I like the flavor combination of chocolate chips and apricots but I followed the recipe EXACTLY and I wound up with a flat spread out cookie. Oven was preheated. Probably would add 1/2 cup more flour or some rolled oats to prevent this problem. Read More

This recipe was really very yummy and an interesting combination of flavors. I used a lesser amount of dark chocolate chunks and it worked very well - any more and it would have definitely been too sweet for me.

I baked for Christmas gifts along with an assortment of other cookies. I wanted a chocolate chip cookie but not the traditional kind. This was a good twist. I loved the chewiness/tartness of the apricots in with the crunchiness of the cookie. Read More

Made these cookies sat Aug14 to celebrate my sister's birthday they came out very good I love them chewy and the taste of apricot mixed with the chocolate splendid. This recipe is a keeper. I made no changes other than cutting back on the sugar. Cutting it back by a few tablespoons each sugar. Read More

I'm giving these a 5 because the flavor and idea was so good but my experimentation wasn't. The recipe sounded so good that I had to make them but I didn't have any dried apricots only apricot jam. I substituted 1/4 cup of the white sugar for splenda and added 1/2 cup apricot jam in place of the apricots. The result was a super sweet cookie with amazing taste that was too runny. I WILL make them again and if I don't have dried apricots I will leave out the white sugar as the jam is sweet enough and add a little more flour. I also froze part of the dough but haven't cooked them yet to see if there is any difference. WOW! Apricots in chocolate chip cookies what a great idea! Read More

I'm a soon to be culinary student. I made these as an experiment. I'm starting with simple ingrediant lists and advancing with every success onto another type of recipe. I found this one to be runny the cookies were gooey and spread out too much without any advance warning that they would be a very chewy gooey type cookie. I thought the sugar content too high with chocolate and apricot (both of which need little assistance to stand out and which are competitive in flavor and do not need a third overpowering flavor added.) I would make a slighty stronger batter with more of a shortbread in the future as that would have a better complement for chocolate and apricot. Otherwise it was o.k. but not an all star cookie.

This was good and an interesting combination but will not be my "stand by" chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made this the same afternoon as the chocolate chip cookie V recipe. We did a family taste test and the choc chip V's were the unanimous winner. I will try that recipe with the dried apricots next time. Read More
