  5. On low speed, mix in the flour mixture just until combined. Gently stir in the apricots by hand.
  6. Roll the dough into 3 tablespoon balls. Place on prepared baking sheets then refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Roll each ball in sanding sugar if using, place on prepared sheets approximately 2 inches apart to allow for spreading.
  9. Cook for 14-16 minutes.
  10. Cool then store in airtight container or freeze.


Feel free to replace apricots with raisins.

I like these slightly undercooked, so I remove them after 14 minutes.
