This is a great oatmeal cookie. Very buttery and I love the additions of apricots, cranberries, coconut and almond extract. It brought these staple cookies to a new level. I omitted the slivered almonds as my husband does not like nuts in cookies. Dh only ate dinner so he could have these cookies afterwards! LOL! He thanked me over and over for making him those.
