I wanted apricot cookies so I went in search of a recipe and found this one.
I had tried another recipe of theirs previously for coconut oatmeal cookies. These were horrible! They looked incredible in the oven until about 1 minute before they were supposed to be done. At that point they completely collapsed into paper-thin nothings. They were so bad I threw away the cookies AND the dough!
So, with some trepidation I gave Betty Crocker another shot. These cookies have incredible texture. They are slightly crunchy on the outside, and soft (yet dense-ish) on the inside. But, they lack flavor (even with the modifications!).
- 1/3 cup Splenda and 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon green cardamom
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Thankfully, I only cooked one-half the batch. I like these enough that I will be bumping up the flavor in the remainder. I will be adding more chocolate, pecans, cinnamon, green cardamom, and apricot extract (if I can find it locally – unlikely!). Look for the post.
