These are one of my favourite cookies and my son likes them too. These cookies are an unusual but irresistible combination of dried apricots, cream cheese and white chocolate. They are quick to make and take just a few minutes to prepare. You will find them dead easy to make even if you have never made cookies before. You can involve your kids to make these cookies they would love it.
8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter
4 oz cream cheese
Half cup superfine sugar
Half cup all purpose flour
Quarter cup chopped dried apricots
Half cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degree. Line some baking sheets with parchment or other baking paper (unless non-stick).
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy. Gradually add the flour, then fold in the apricots and chocolate. The dough will be quite soft – don’t worry!
Drop heaping teaspoons of the mixture onto the baking sheets and bake for about 15 minutes until lightly golden. Allow the cookies to cool and harden for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
