Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Macadamia and Apricot Cookies

Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Macadamia and Apricot Cookies

Once upon a time, I worked at a cafe that had a chocolate chip cookie recipe with dried apricots in it.

And my response when I saw the recipe, was to wonder (aloud) why anyone would ruin a perfectly delicious chocolate chip cookie with something like dried fruit.

Everyone just told me to wait and try them before I judged, because, they said, it just works.

I scrunched up my nose, made the dough and baked the cookies. And they were right. It totally works. It’s all in the combination of textures.
