    Judy from Hawaii's Note:

    This recipe is originally from McCall's magazine, over 20 years ago. The apricot filling is lovely, & worth the effort.

      My DH loves apricot anything so these were made for him and he said "terrific". I must be honest and say I didn't measure the apricots, I just dumped the last of a bag. not sure how much there was. I had to add more than 3 tablespoons of the liquid and another teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken it up. I also added 1 tablespoon of Cointreau after removing from the heat. As you can see they turned out very good. Thanks for the great apricot recipe Judy.
