This is the first time for making these. They are from Cathy Barrow, who blogs for MrsWheelbarrow.com. This recipe was posted in the Washington Post, Dec. 8, 2010. My friend Toni put me on to their Christmas cookie section. Thanks Toni.
I doubled the recipe and got 79 pieces. The recipe says 60 small candies. I used a small cookie scoop abt. 3/4 tsp., they were using 1/2 tsp. The recipe also says these are a little sweet, a little tart, a little chewy. Another addition to my Christmas Candy Boxes.

How to Make Apricot Confections

Step-by-Step

  1. *Combine apricots and coconut in the bowl of a food processor. Add the sweetened condensed milk; pulse to form a dough that holds together.
    *Note: I pulsed the apricots by their self a couple of times before adding the coconut, then pulsed again before adding the milk.
  2. Spread confectioners sugar on a baking sheet or a large plate; use a little to dust your hands.
  3. Scoop the dough in very small amounts, about 1/2 teaspoon, to form a loose ball. Roll each one in the sugar until well coated. Transfer to a wire rack to dry for at least 1 hour and up to overnight before serving or storing.
