This recipe is from marthastewart.com; one of her "cookie of the day" recipes. When I made these the other day I substituted semisweet morsels for the white chocolate and they turned out great! I think you'll like them, too.

Really delicious. I tried to cut corners and didn't refrigerate the dough -- my cookies were flat, like lace cookies. Next time I'll do as it says; hopefully they'll turn out a little thicker. You can't beat the taste of apricots and white chocolate, and the oatmeal really makes them complete.
