Apricot & White Chocolate Cookies

When I was a kid
we had an apricot tree
in our backyard.

Our summers
were filled with...
1. helping Mom prune the tree
2. waiting patiently for them to ripen
3. sharing in a wonderful snack
as we played throughout the day.

So, when I found this recipe
I could not resist but try them.

They were so delicious.

Apricot and White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dried apricots (chopped)
1/2 cup white chocolate (coarsely chopped)

1. Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl.
2. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
3. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl.
4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
5. Mix in the rolled oats, apricots and white chocolate.
6. Place the dough onto a cookie sheet one table spoon at a time.
7. Bake in a 350F preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
