white chocolate apricot cookies

February 1, 2008 at 6:40 pm | Posted in Chocolate, Cookies, Fruit | 5 Comments

my apologies for not updating for the longest time. i have embarked on another stage of my not-so-happening life, hence the sporadic entries. i have been baking occasionally actually, just that they’re not new recipes. the same old brownies/cookies to feed some people around me.

i was blog-hopping when i was badly hit by a craving of white chocolate and dried apricots. for the longest time i wanted to incorporate these in a cookie, but i don’t know why it has evaded me. i checked if i had white chocolate chips (because i bought a packet of dried apricots a couple of weeks back) and when i caught sight of it, off i went.

170g butter, softened
220g caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
280g white chocolate chunks/chips
1 cup finely diced dried apricots

1. preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius.

2. cream together butter and sugar until smooth. add egg and vanilla essence and blend in.

3. stir in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. mix in white chocolate chunks/chips and dried apricots.

4. roll into balls (however big/small you desire), place on greased baking sheets and bake for 9-11 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.

5. stand for 2-3 minutes on baking sheets and cool completely on wire rack.

i liked the texture of these – they were crispy and crumbly and chewy at the same time… and i actually liked the “stickiness” of the apricots.
