“It was my turn to make the fellowship treat for church. Between Sunday School and the morning service we have a short coffee break where we enjoy coffee, juice and some sort of coffee cake etc... I wanted something some what healthy that everyone could easily grab. I had a big container of oatmeal and dried apricots in the pantry and used them as my jumping point. These even make a fantastic breakfast cookie!”
