Ingredients

  • 3 eggs

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 cups flaked coconut

  • 7 ½ ounces vanilla wafers, crushed

  • 8 ounces dried apricots

Directions

  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.
