Recipe by Rose's Granddaughter
A recipe given by Kirkland Signature for their pitted dried plums. Bought the plums at Costco and they taste so good alone. The plums are high in Iron, Vitamins A, B6, B12 and E. Also, of course, a great source of fiber.
- 12 dried plums (2/3 cup)
- 3 tablespoons hot water
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 3⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
