these are terrific

Top Review by justcallmetoni

The first cookie for my 2007 holiday trays and off to a very strong start. These are soft and tender with a buttery break apart tenderness. Not at all sweet but buttery rich. The bits of soft apricots add a lovely accent. I chilled these in the fridge and baked off 2 or 3 for testing and rating, the rest are in the freezer. I think a couple tablespoons of chopped pistachios would be a terrific variation.
