I've made these great one-bite apricot pecan "pies" for my Christmas gift trays for a couple of years and always get rave reviews. I love the dried apricots, but you could substitute almost any dried fruit you like. I got this recipe from a Christmas Cookie cookbook that credits the recipe to the California Apricot Advisory Board.

I made these with the dried diced tropical mixed fruit and they were so good! My daughter and husband just loved them. Thanks for posting.
