“I've made these great one-bite apricot pecan "pies" for my Christmas gift trays for a couple of years and always get rave reviews. I love the dried apricots, but you could substitute almost any dried fruit you like. I got this recipe from a Christmas Cookie cookbook that credits the recipe to the California Apricot Advisory Board.”
