Apricot sugar cookies

Have you ever participated in a cookie swap?  Aren’t they fun?  A couple of years ago we did one at our church Christmas party and we loved it.

This year I’m participating in the Favorite Family Recipes Virtual Recipe Swap.  Several blogger got together to send each other one of their family’s favor holiday recipes.  I sent our family’s favorite holiday drink, Caramel Apple Cider and I received a super quick and easy recipe for these Apricot Sugar Cookies from Susan at The Foodette.
We had some friends over for dinner and these were the perfect dessert.  Because the recipe starts with a cookie mix they took hardly any time to prepare and everyone really enjoyed them.  
 

Here’s the Recipe:

2 cups dried apricots, chopped (I used one package)
1 pkg sugar cookie mix 
1 stick of butter softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon orange extract

*omit or add any ingredients your cookie mix calls for

Pre-heat oven to 375 and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray

The cookie balls only need to be place about an inch or so apart, they didn’t spread much

Bake 8-10 minutes, depending on your oven
