Apricot Crescents Recipe - (Pies & Pastries)

Ingredients:

1 cup butter ( or margarine)
2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
1 egg yolk (beaten)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 jar apricot jam (18 ounces)
1 cup & 2 tablespoons coconut
3/4 cup pecans (finely chopped)
Sugar (to sprinkle)

Directions:

Cut the butter and place it in the flour until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Combine the egg yolk and sour cream, and blend into the flour mixture. Divide dough into 6  balls, wrap in waxed paper, and chill for several hours or overnight. Remove from the refrigerator, and roll each ball into a 10-inch circle. Spread each with 3 tablespoons jam, 3 tablespoons coconut, and 2 tablespoons nuts. Cut into 12 pie-shaped wedges. Start at the wide end of the wedge, and roll into a crescent. Sprinkle with sugar. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on the rack. These can be frozen and thawed to room temperature to serve. (Makes 6 dozen)

If you want to impress a friend who is coming over for a visit, these apricot crescents are perfect to bake and serve. They taste great! If you are asked if you bought them you can proudly say you baked them. These crescents will go with any occasion. For added sweetness, you can lightly pour icing over the top of the crescents and then sprinkle with sugar.

More Information On Apricot Crescents:

Crescents are named after their crescent shape. Crescents were born in the early 20th century, and in America came on the industrial factory scene in the late 1970's packaged and frozen. You can learn more about the interesting history of the crescent here.

My Thoughts For The Day:

A good lunch!

A friend from work brought some food for us today. It was very tasty! She brought corn chips too. She makes large portions of food and sometimes has leftovers. She said she doesn't mind bringing food to us and likes to share. It is a great blessing! She mentioned she makes the cheese in a rue with seasoning in a skillet and then adds the cheese. She used store-bought rotisserie chicken and shredded it in with the cheese.

She has shared food many times with me and it always makes me think about how food connects us as people. On so many different occasions food is present. I think food is hard-wired into our human species and makes any conversation more interesting. How was the food prepared or where the recipe came from might be a part of the interaction. You never know what you may learn while sharing your favorite food.

Keep on cooking!
