Recipe Comments & Reviews

I added 1/4 cup chocolate chips and they went so well with dried apricots. The cookies were soft, moist and really delicious. I think I'll bake this again and again. I didn't sprinkle sugar on the cookies because I don't like anything too sweet. I didn't have any almond slices either. But the cookies were so good already. I love Landolakes' recipes.
This soft drop cookie is soooooooo very delicious. I make these every year during Christmas. Def. one of my favorites as well as my father and sister.
A perfect blend of almond and apricot flavors. My sister, co-worker and I looooooove these.
Easy to make and delicious!
