Dried apricots are great used in baking, whether it's cakes, scones or biscuits. Crunchy, sweet and irresistible, these apricot biscuits are just the treat to serve at tea time.
To make the biscuits, simply rub together the flour and butter until you reach a sandy consistency. Then incorporate the sugar, eggs, vanilla and apricots. Form a ball and let sit in the refrigerator for at least a half hour. Cooling the dough will make it easier to handle.
After rolling and shaping, bake the apricot biscuits until golden. Allow them to cool before serving with tea or coffee. Stir up a little excitement at tea time with these handmade Japanese tea caddies or this fun shark tea infuser.
