I think I am becoming a cookie monster and for sure developing some sort of cookie addiction. I like the pretty cookies, the healthy ones, the chocolate ones, the old fashion ones, the quick ones, the fruity and nutty ones, the home baked ones and the fancy ones from Laduree too. I like them all with a lovely cup of tea.
Not long ago I came across Michelle’s blog – The Green Bite – and her amazing apricot-maple-oatmeal cookies. I am telling you – they turned out fantastically gooey and chewy! I made the cookies according to Michellle’s instructions, yet I added just a few small amendments.
Those cookies are absolutely tasty, delicious and they would easily make an excellent afternoon or even morning snack.
Btw, the apricot-maple-oatmeal cookies are FUN to make – be ready for a sticky job :)To view the original recipe click here: A-M-O Cookies.
You will need:
1/3 cup softened butter
1/2 cup cane sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup dried apricots, chopped
Preheat the oven to 190 ℃.
Beat softened butter, sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together using a balloon whisk until creamy. Add the lightly beaten egg and stir to incorporate. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir to combine. Add oats and apricots. Stir to combine.
Form small balls and place on the cookie sheet (use baking paper or grease the tray) pressing the cookie dough gently. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove from oven and let the cookies rest for 1-2 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing and placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
Try and enjoy something new!
