  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 6 dozen miniature muffin cups with paper liners.

  • Roll dough into small balls and press each ball into the bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup. Fill each cup 3/4-full with apricot preserves.

  • Mix coconut, white sugar, and eggs together in a bowl; spoon over apricot filling, making sure to cover completely.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until topping is lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Make sure topping is on top of cookie and not over sides as this might cause difficulty in removing cookies from pan.

Absolute buttery-apricot deliciousness! I didn't use paper liners but did butter the mini muffin cups and they came out beautifully no sticking whatever. Wouldn't change a single thing. Scaled this down to 12 and these will be gone SHORTLY! Thanks for sharing! Read More

As far as flavor these are buttery and very sweet. Too sweet for me in fact. A word of warning - when it says fill 3/4 full it means it. I did do this according to the directions and still feel like I over filled them. They boiled all over the cupcake pans and into the oven. I would also check them at 15 and 20 minutes as this may have contributed to the problem. I did not remove stars from the recipe for what I feel may be my error. Read More

The result is excellent. I have made many new friends who love these little treats. BUT the proportions of the recipe are all wrong. There is always just barely enough crust and often I run out of topping before the stated 'number of servings'. Read More
