Simple Apricot Confection Recipe

A cross between a cookie and a candy. Absolutely irresistible.


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 7 1/2 ounces vanilla wafers, crushed
  • 8 ounces dried apricots


1. Snip apricots into small strips. Sprinkle with water and let stand in a sealed container overnight.

2. Combine eggs, sugar, and apricots. In a lightly buttered skillet cook the apricot mixture over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in the nuts, vanilla wafer crumbs and 1/2 of the coconut.

3. Shape mixture into small balls. Roll balls in the remaining coconut. Store in a tightly covered box. These taste best after aging for a few days.
