• 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened well
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1 large egg
• 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
• 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage leaves
• 1/2 cup cornmeal
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. and lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
In a bowl whisk together butter, sugar, and egg until smooth. Sift in flour and baking soda and add apricots, sage, cornmeal, and salt, stirring until combined.
Drop tablespoons of dough about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets and bake in batches in middle of oven 10 minutes, or until pale golden. Cool cookies on sheets 2 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool.
