NO BAKE APRICOT FRUIT BALLS – Gluten Free

My mother started right after Thanksgiving making Christmas cookies and other holiday treats.  She made dozens of some of the cookies, and only one recipe of some of the others that only she and I liked.  Here is one that is no bake and gluten free which the two of us really loved.  One year I made these and got the ingredient mix backwards, and I ended up with the pecans in the mix and coated the balls with coconut.  I really liked them that way as they reminded me of the apricot candies made by See’s that are rolled in toasted coconut.

NO BAKE FRUIT BALLS

8 oz. dried apricots or dried peaches, chopped fine

2-l/2 cups flaked cocunut

3/4 cup sweet condensed Eagle Brand milk

2/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Mix first three ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.  Then roll into one inch balls.  Roll each ball in the chopped pecans.  Let stand two hours, then refrigerate in air tight container.

ENJOY!

      • Your grandmother made these after she became a widow and started cooking for herself rather than your grandfather!
        I was amazed at the things she would make after he died. He wasn’t very adventurous when it came to food.
