Dip cookies in egg white, then in pecans. Place on greased cookie sheet. With your thumb, make indentation in center of each. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. While still warm, fill centers with apricot mixture. Apricot preserves may be substituted for dried apricots!

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