EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Aysha Schurman from Ammon, ID created this recipe for a Celebrate the Season Holiday Cookie Contest.

"This recipe combines the flavors of my favorite treat, Chai tea, with my family’s favorite treat, apricots. The recipe evolved over a few different batches, and even I have to admit that the first few tries were awful. However, ever since I found the right combination a few years ago, everyone begs me to bring my special bark to their holiday party." Aysha Schurman
