A sweet treat after lunch, these cookies provide the chocolate boost necessary to keep my legs strong. Luckily for the other skiers, there is always a container full of these and other treats in the cat – or I would never have shared them!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricot
  • 1 cup chopped pecan

Method

In large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder; stir into butter mixture to combine. Stir in white chocolate chips, apricots and pecans.

Drop by rounded 1 tbsp (15 mL), about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto parchment paper-lined or greased rimless baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until firm to the touch and no longer glossy, about 12 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
