Farmer's Apricot Pecan Candy (1970)

  • 1 lb confectioners sugar
  • 6 tbspns melted butter
  • 2 tbspns orange juice
  • 1/2 tspn vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 11-oz package of dried apricots, ground (about 1 1/2 cup)
Combine sugar, butter, orange juice and vanilla.  Add apricots.  Mix, then knead in a bowl until ingredients are well mixed.

Form into 1-inch balls. Roll in chopped pecans or walnuts. Store in refrigerator or freezer in covered container.  Flavor improves with storage.  Makes six dozen candies.

If you like, you can omit the chopped nuts, and roll the candy balls in 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut.
