    To begin, place all ingredients apart from the halved apricots, coconut and almonds in the processor. Mix for approx. 3 minutes or until the apricot is very finely chopped and all ingredients are combined together. Add the almonds and desiccated coconut and blitz for another minute until the almonds are chopped up. Tip out this mixture onto a work surface and knead the apricot dough together with the chopped halved apricots. Once combined roll the mixture into a long log – this recipe should make a log about m long and 4 cm in diameter. Once you have a nice even shape, roll the log in the remaining desiccated coconut. Wrap in glad wrap and carefully place in a refrigerator for at least 2 hours to firm up. what a great recipe! I don t think i ve ever seen the halved apricots, what can I substitute it? Can I just use all whole dried apricots and add a little bit of lemon juice for tartness?


    This is a very fruity holiday cookie recipe. A jellied apricot mixture is baked onto a shortbread crust. Simple to make and very yummy!!
