Heat oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars on medium-high until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in the chocolate chips, apricots, and nuts.

Ingredients

  1. Check 3 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  2. Check 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  3. Check 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  4. Check 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  5. Check 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

  10. Check 12 ounces semisweet or milk chocolate chips (2 cups)
  11. Check 1 cup chopped dried apricots (about 20 whole)
  12. Check 5 ounces macadamia nuts, chopped (1 cup)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder; set aside.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars on medium-high until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in the chocolate chips, apricots, and nuts.
  4. Drop mounds of the dough (about 2 tablespoons each) 3 inches apart onto baking sheets.
