Original recipe makes 4 dozen Change Servings


  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.

I substituted Pecans for this recipe and made them on a Sunday and brought them to work on Wednesday, and got so many compliments. They are delicious -- some one said, "Oh, good, there will be more tomorrow." Definitely a five star recipe.

I made this recipe as part of my holiday cookie baking. It sounded good and it was a change from all of the chocolate confections. Unfortunately, they just weren't that appealing and most of them were still left after Christmas.

VERY sweet candy-like balls. I couldn't wait to refrigerate the apricot snips overnight so I skipped that part and made them right then. I think they turned out fine!

This was a faceless recipe and I decided to give it a try since I had all the ingredients on hand. Very pleased with how the recipe turned out. This is an easy to make recipe - which can be considered a candy as well as a cookie. I recalculated the recipe for 12 servings. I used the food processor for chopping the nuts, wafers and coconut. A very nice Apricot Confection that would dress up a tray for special occasions.
