Apricot Oat Crunchies

Anonymous left a comment on one of our posts saying she was googling Apricot Crunch Cookies and our blog came up in her search. COOL! I don't know if this is the recipe you are looking for but these are a very, very good cookie. The first time I made them I was teaching 'the teenager' how to bake and we didn't have cornflakes cereal. We substituted a couple of muffits (like shredded wheat cereal). She got rave reviews about the cookies.

Hope this is what you are looking for and enjoy!

Apricot Oat Crunchies

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup margarine, softened
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 ½ cups flour

½ tsp salt

1 cup dried apricots, chopped
2/3 cup coconut
2/3 cup wheat germ
2 cups cornflakes cereal

Happy Baking, Carolin

    This is a recipe I consider to be gold! Thank you so much. As I mentioned I first tasted an "apricot crunch cookie" at a coffee shop and have been unsucessfully on the lookout for recipe ever since.

    The only other reference I could find for "apricot crunch cookies" today was a tweet from September 13, 2010 from Goldman's Bakery :
