    A lovely crisp biscuit made with oats, dried apricots and sunflower seeds. Deliciously different! Don't be tempted to alter the ingredient amounts, otherwise you may not get the same crispy result!

    These are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made! I separated the batter into two separate bowls and added dried cherries to one of them, a great treat and fun for the kids to eat!  -  24 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made only a few slight changes. I was out of eggs, so I used a 1/2 cup applesauce instead. I also added the smallest dash of vanilla extract and omitted the sunflower seeds since I did not have any. These were *amazing* right out of the oven. The apricots were still warm and the flavor was great. They were still good the next day...soft, perfect texture (probably from the applesauce).  -  01 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really like these cookies, however it is for the out-side-of-the-box flavor they have. Every bite I take seems as though it's missing something. I will experiment with the recipe and see how I can really give it that pop.  -  05 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
