Craving: Apricot-Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 26, 2011

It may be Tuesday but I am still in recovery mode from a long weekend filled with two family Easter celebrations, a trip to MOCA’s “Art in the Streets” exhibit {photos posting this week} and LOTS of good food! As always, I was in charge of  bringing the baked goods to Easter dinner so I made these Cadbury Creme Cupcakes, a double layered Carrot Cake, and a batch of Apricot-Chocolate Chip cookies. The addition of the tart and chewy apricot bits make these cookies a new favorite!

Apricot-Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) chocolate chips
1 cup roughly chopped dried apricots

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Mix flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and apricots by hand. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
