The cookies are incredible. I love apricots in every way shape or form and this recipe is easy and apricot. I made a tin of them for everyone who attended our Holiday party and everyone loved them too. Thanks for posting the recipe, Theresa.

These were quite good. The first batch was a little sticky, so I added a little milk afterwards. They were more fluffy with the milk. Also, for the frosting I used cream cheese instead of butter. I also added a couple drops of amaretto flavoring to the frosting. Pretty yummy! My opinion of these cookies improved when my DH took them to his school's teacher's lounge and a couple of women were dying for the recipe! Thanks, Theresa!
