Recipe challenge, recipe #52.
I'm making these cookies today. They are a family cookie and were often made for Christmas at my grandma's house. The first time I attempted them I was 18 and they did not come out right. They were kind of crumbly. Still tasted good though. The next two times I made them, they were perfect. I'm hoping to have the same success today.
I mentioned making apricot cookies to my mom and she said to send her some. So I will if these turn out okay. The downfall of having just Scott and I here is that any cookies stare at us until we eat them. This is why I only made two kinds this year, instead of the 4 or 5 I usually do. However, I mentioned to him that I was thinking of making cookies to mail to Pennsylvania (this is completely normal in our military lifestyle) and he asked what kind. I said apricot squares thinking he'd need an explanation because the last time I made them was four years ago. His response involved an expletive and a yes, pleasepleasemakethose. Which means he remembers them I'm assuming.
So with this light, flaky crust and sweet filling, you might like them too. I personally love apricot, but if you don't, you can use any jam or preserve you do love.
Let me know if you try them!
