I'm making a new cookie for Christmas this year (it was the winning cookie in the Star's contest) but it calls for Solo Apricot filling (or prune) ... and I can't find any. Either it's all been bought by people making the cookie too or the local grocery stores don't stock it.
The author of the recipe says that you can use jam but that it will run out of the cookie... that doesn't sound good and it won't be pretty.
I bought some apricot jam anyway hoping I could thicken it somehow.
Is this possible? Without changing the taste? I was thinking maybe warming the jam, adding some cornstarch and maybe lemon to keep the flavor bright.
What do you think?
