These are delicious cookies! I did take the advice of other reviewers and I added about 1/8 cup of flour (I used a little less than 1/4 cup total). I also used dried cherries because I didn't have apricots and I loved how they turned out.

I like the flavor combination of chocolate chips and apricots, but I followed the recipe EXACTLY and I wound up with a flat, spread out cookie. Oven was preheated. Probably would add 1/2 cup more flour or some rolled oats to prevent this problem.

Great recipe. I used white chocolate chip, trhe next time I will ad a pinch of my wife's secret ingredient (ground nutmeg).

This recipe was really very yummy and an interesting combination of flavors. I used a lesser amount of dark chocolate chunks and it worked very well - any more and it would have definitely been too sweet for me. You can see a picture here:

Made these cookies sat Aug14, to celebrate my sister's birthday, they came out very good, I love them chewy and the taste of apricot mixed with the chocolate, splendid. This recipe is a keeper. I made no changes other than cutting back on the sugar. Cutting it back by a few tablespoons each sugar.

I baked for Christmas gifts along with an assortment of other cookies. I wanted a chocolate chip cookie but not the traditional kind. This was a good twist. I loved the chewiness/tartness of the apricots in with the crunchiness of the cookie.

I'm giving these a 5 because the flavor and idea was so good, but my experimentation wasn't. The recipe sounded so good that I had to make them, but I didn't have any dried apricots, only apricot jam. I substituted 1/4 cup of the white sugar for splenda, and added 1/2 cup apricot jam in place of the apricots. The result was a super sweet cookie with amazing taste that was too runny. I WILL make them again, and if I don't have dried apricots I will leave out the white sugar as the jam is sweet enough, and add a little more flour. I also froze part of the dough, but haven't cooked them yet to see if there is any difference. WOW! Apricots in chocolate chip cookies, what a great idea!
