Apricot and White Chip Cookies with Almonds
It's hard to rate this recipe since I'm no fan of white chips - but white-chip enthusiasts will be delighted, because the dairy/vanilla chip flavor dominates the finished cookie. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, 1 cup of chips is plenty. I also used 1 c diced apricots and 1 c sliced almonds instead of the 3/4 c. called for in the recipe. The cookies were still quite sweet. Be sure your oven is not too hot - if the chips melt they make the cookies spread out and get oily. I had to be vigilant about rotating the sheets around my oven's hot spot. (This happened with Nestle chips - other brands may behave differently). This would be a good cookie for an event where other people are also bringing cookies, since it's a bit unusual yet quite easy to make.

The first reviewer is right: a cookie press makes the gooey dough simple to handle and the cookies don't need 20 minutes to bake. These are very Italian cookies, not overly sweet, with a subtle eggy flavor set off by the tart lemon icing. The outside is sturdy and the inside tender and rather dry. The frosting dries like a fondant - hard, glossy and stackable. This cookie will appeal to adults more than to children. It's great with coffee and better the second day than it is fresh. These will ship well. The recipe as printed makes plenty of extra frosting, possibly enough for a second batch of cookies. Next time I'll use more lemon juice and less water in the frosting.
