Bits of apricot add a delightful tartness to chocolate chip cookies.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped dried apricots
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet.
Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat together the butter, turbinado sugar, and brown sugar until fluffy, then beat in the egg, vanilla, and salt. Stir the flour and baking soda into the butter mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips and apricots. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
