Ingredients:
1/2 Pound(s) Dried apricots
Icing sugar
A few pistachio nuts
opt'l.
Directions:
Wipe apricots with a damp cloth. Do not soak or wash them, as this
would make them too moist. Mince or chop them very finely. Add a few
tablespoons confectioners' sugar to taste, and knead thoroughly by
hand, wetting your hands from time to time to make a smooth, soft,
slightly moist paste. Shape into marble-sized balls. Roll them in
confectioners' sugar and let them dry overnight. You can insert half
a bright green pistachio nut on top to offset the rich orange of the
apricots. A splendid variation is stuffed apricotina. Use 1 tb.
ground almonds or finely chopped pistachios mixed with 1 heaping tsp.
sugar. Make a small hole in the center of each apricotina. Put in a
little of the filling, close the hole again, and roll in
confectioners' sugar. From A Book of Middle Eastern Food by Claudia
