Soft and moist cookies made with apricot preserves. Coconut and pecans are interchangeable according to your taste. These are also really good using peach preserves.

PLEASE READ!! I strongly suggest using 1/2 cup apricot preserves in the batter instead of 1/4 cup. 1/4 cup still works fine for the frosting part though. Also, near the end of her recipe it says to bake for 8-10 minutes but it should be 14 minutes. I had fallen in love with these cookies when I first tried them years ago but didn't get the recipe at that time. When I found it here I tried it and they were extremely bland..not at all like I remembered them. After researching several other recipe sites I consistantly found the changes I've mentioned and my cookies are much improved. Hope this helps.

Another good one from Beth! Being the apricot lover that I am, I had to try these. I'm so glad I did. They are so moist and yummy. I, too, increased the apricot and baked for 12 mins. Of course I frosted them!

I made this recipie low sugar by substituting Splenda and Splenda brown sugar and sugar free preserves. Its great with Raspberry, Strawberry, or Lemon Curd. I also used thiny cut slices of fruit leather to decorate the tops. The nurses at the hospital where I work just begged for the recipe, esp the ones on low carb diets.
