    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 48

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak apricots in brandy for at least an hour, but preferably overnight.
    2. 2
      Drain and reserve liquid.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar and allspice, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
    4. 4
      (can be done quickly with a few pulses in a food processor) Combine egg yolk and sour cream and gently blend mixture into butter/flour mixture.
    5. 5
      Divide dough in quarters and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or, preferably, overnight.
    6. 6
      Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
    7. 7
      Roll out each quarter the dough into 1/8 thickness, cut with a 2 1/2" round (fluted is preferred) cookie cutter.
    8. 8
      Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, place one apricot on half of each cookie and fold over other half to leave apricot partially exposed.
    9. 9
      Bake for aprox 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
    10. 10
      Cool on a rack.
    11. 11
      While baking prepare next batch.
    12. 12
      For icing combine powdered sugar with 2-3 tblspn of the reserved apricot brandy.
    13. 13
      I like to cook the brandy until the alcohol smell is gone, but it's fine either way.
    14. 14
      After completly cooled dip half the cookie in icing and leave on a wire rack to dry for several hours.
    15. 15
      Store in an airtight container at room temperature for about a week, but are at their peak for 2-3 days.
