A Lotta Apricots

Today I took the remains of my holiday baking spree to work.  I had a plate each of banana bread, gingersnaps, peanut butter fudge, and these, which disappeared more quickly than anything else.  Amazingly easy and delicious, too!

Apricot Cookies

2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk*
2 cups coconut
1 1/2 cups ground dried apricots**
powdered sugar

Mix the condensed milk, coconut, and apricots.  Form into balls and roll them in the powdered sugar.  Let the cookies air dry until firm.  Store in the refrigerator.

*You may need slightly more milk if your coconut is too dry.  (A can of sweetened condensed milk usually holds one cup.)

**This time I ran out of apricots, so I used 1 cup of dried apricots and 1/2 cup dried cranberries, which was good, too.

"Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap. " ~Barbara Jordan
