White chocolate, dried apricots, crunchy chewy cookies.... what´s not to like?

Food52 Review: These cookies have a rich, buttery flavor with subtle notes of apricot and white chocolate, and a chewy texture. If you like more cake-y cookies, consider upping the flour, and if you want your apricot to be more pronounced, you could get away with adding another half-handful, or so, of dried apricots.Leslie
