Amaretto Apricot Chews

1 cup butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon amaretto
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons amaretto (to 3 tbsps.)

Preheat to 375 degrees.

With an electric mixer, beat butter until softened. Add brown sugar and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and 1 tablespoon amaretto. Beat well. Add flour and baking soda and continue mixing. By hand, stir in oats, apricots and almonds. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on sheet for 1 minute and then remove to wire rack and cool completely. Stir together powdered sugar and enough of the 2-3 tablespoons amaretto to make an icing of drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cookies. Makes 54 cookies.
