I’ve been baking lots of cookies lately.  I’m trying to find great cookie recipe that doesn’t have choc chips in it.  You see Mr L is cutting down on chocolate, and the boys love just about anything chocolaty.  So Ive combined a vanilla butter cookie and apricot oat biscuit recipe and I’ve come up with these semi-healthy cookies with just a light drizzle of dark chocolate.

INGREDIENTS

  • 110 grams of softened butter

  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup self raising flour, sifted

  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup diced dried apricots

  • a handful of dark choc melts

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celcius and line 2 baking trays with paper

  2. Dice the apricots into small pieces, about the size of a choc chip

  3. Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.  Takes a while as the brown sugar is heavier than white, but don’t rush this step.  Add vanilla and lightly beaten egg, and beat

  4. Next add the flour and mix till just combined, then stir in the oats and apricots

  5. Scoop small amounts into your hands and roll together to form small balls, The dough is crumbly, but just press the crumbs gently together, and roll.  Place balls on a try and gently flatten with the back of a fork.

  6. Bake for 15 minutes, let cool for 1 minute on the tray before cooling completely on a wire rack.

  7. When cool, microwave a handful of choc melts in the microwave.  Do this slowly in 10 second blitses, stirring between each 10 seconds.  when melted, drizzle chocolate over the cooled cookies.
