  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 20 servings
  
       1 c  Pecan halves
       1 tb Unsalted butter; melted
   2 1/2 c  Sweetened shredded coconut
     1/2 c  Chopped dried apricots
     1/2 c  Chopped semisweet chocolate
            Or chocolate morsels
       7 oz Sweetened condensed milk;
            -canned
  
      Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment
   paper, or use a nonstick pan.
      Toss the pecans in the melted butter to evenly coat. Spread the nuts on
   an ungreased baking sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden and
   aromatic. Set aside to cool, and then chop roughly. Place the chopped
   pecans and the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon
   until evenly moistened.
       Spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter for each cookie onto the lined
   baking sheet and gently flatten to circles of about 2 1/4 inches in
   diameter (these cookies do not spread). Bake 10 minutes or until the
   coconut turns very pale golden, being careful not to overbrown. Transfer to
   racks to cool.
