These are a treat. Your family and friends will think that they took forever to bake, only you need know how quick and easy they were to make. It'll be our little secret.

- Sprinkle the pastry lightly with cinnamon.
- Bake puff pastry in a 375 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
- Drain the orange juice from the apricots and making sure that the apricots are well drained, set the apricots aside till needed.
- Cool pastry on wire rack.
- Once the pastry has cooled cut along the scored lines of the pastry sheet.

I took a close look at the preparation steps & decided that there were actually only 11, & the prep time was way less than 75 minutes ~ So that made me a happy camper! What with the combo of apricot, orange & coconut, these little thingies are AN OUTSTANDING TASTE TREAT! Certainly a keeper! [Made & reviewed for one of my partners in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #17]
These are an impressive, utterly delicious dessert. While it is absolutely true that the baking took very little time and that each preparation and each assembly step was both easy and quick, the number of steps takes this way out of the realm of quick and easy, for me at least. I did love the taste! Update: The filling and topping keep amazingly well in the refrigerator. I assembled one last night and was even more impressed.
