tuesday in the kitchen: apricot + white chocolate cookies

We made this slightly adapted Martha recipe this morning - easy, kid friendly and delish!

Apricot + White Chocolate Cookies

1.5 cups plain flour
1.5 cups rolled oats
1/2t bi-carb soda
225g unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1t salt
1t vanilla extract
2 eggs
225g white chocolate bits*
225g bag of dried apricots, chopped*

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and/or line two baking sheets.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Add salt, vanilla and eggs, and beat until just combined.
Add flour, rolled oats and bi-carb, stirring until just combined.
Stir in chocolate bits and chopped apricots.
Use two tablespoons to place small heaps of mixture onto the baking sheets - space about 5cm apart (they spread)
Bake until cookies are golden brown around the edges, but still soft in the centre (about 15 minutes - depends on your oven). Let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

*You could swap the white chocolate for milk or dark, and really use any dried fruit you like/have in the cupboard.
