  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla

  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans


Combine apricots and 1/3 cup of the sugar; cook until thickened. Cool and set aside. Cream butter and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Sift salt and flour together and add to creamed mixture. Chill dough slightly. Form into balls. Slightly beat egg white. Dip cookies in egg white, then in pecans. Place on greased cookie sheet.

Robin, These sound like they would be good, but you left out the measurements of flour and salt!
