How To Make apricot swoons from mom marcon's kitchen

  • 1
    Mix apricot preserves, almonds, almond extract and chocolate. Thaw pastry sheets 20 minutes, then unfold. On sugar sprinkled board, roll out each sheet to 14" square. Cut off uneven edges and cut each sheet to 16 squares, 3" each. Put about a teaspoon of mixture on each square and fold over into fingers or triangles. Press edges together with flour dipped fork tines to seal. Put about 1" apart on ungreased baking sheet and pierce with fork tines. Brush with egg and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Bake at 400 until puffed and golden, about 8 minutes. Makes about 32 triangles. Source: My Mom and My Old Recipes
