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.
