Frosted Coconut Apricot Cookies

Kathie Carr


A friend at church gave me this recipe and I tweaked it a bit. The cookies are biscuit-like and the frosting makes them very special.

I'm sorry the picture is out of focus and I will try to post a better one when I make these again, perhaps this weekend.
