My cousin gave me this recipe when we were quite young. We were comparing and sharing recipes (I think we were 10 or 11 years old). She had learned it from her mom, and I copied it down. When I showed it to my mom, she showed me her collection of recipes, and she had the same one from a different source! Our family has used it for years and we like to put it into a half of dried apricot or a fig with a walnut or pecan on top.
