Apricot Pecan Filling Recipe


Store-bought jams and jellies make a very convenient base for sweet fillings that can be used in dozens of baked goods, including cookies, pastries, and tarts. This Apricot Pecan Filling starts with store-bought jam, and since there are only two other ingredients, can be stirred together in a matter of minutes.

At our house, this is the filling of choice for Hamantashen, those delicious cookies traditionally served during Purim celebrations. Since apricot jam is slightly tart and is not as sweet as some other jams, it complements the sweet dough perfectly. This filling is also great in thumbprint cookies.

For quick and easy Apricot Cream Tarts, put a teaspoonful of this Apricot Walnut Filling in the bottom of miniature baked tart shells, top the filling with Basic Cream Pie Filling (which takes less than 15 minutes since it’s done in the microwave), and chill; serve with a squirt of sweetened whipped cream.

Toasting the pecans brings out their flavor, and this filling is best when toasted pecans are added. However, if you’re in a hurry, you can add the pecans without being toasted; the filling will still be very good.
