Ingredients

  • 2 cups dried Probiotic Apricots, coarsely chopped

  • 1-16oz jar apricot preserves

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

  • 1-17 1/2 oz box frozen puff pastry, thawed to room temp

  • 2 egg whites

  • raw sugar crystals

    Instructions

    • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 



    • 2. In a food processor pulse apricots and 1/2 cup of sugar together until you get a coarse grind.  Add in the apricot preserves and pulse until blended. Set aside.



    • 3. Puff pastry should not be thawed too much just enough to roll out. Cut each rectangle into thirds, lightly flour surface and roll out puff pastry sheets into longer strips. 



    • 4. Once your pasty is ready to go, add bread crumbs to apricot mixture and pulse until blended.



    • 5. If you have a medium size pastry bag fill the bag with the apricot mixture and then pipe the mixture down the center of the pastry. If not spoon the mixture down the middle. 



    • 6. Wash edges with egg whites and fold dough over to form a long roll, sealing all edges.



    • 7. Finish all dough strips in this manner.



    • 8. Place logs on prepared cookie sheets (using parchment paper so they do not stick).



    • 9. Brush tops of logs with egg white and sprinkle with raw sugar crystals.



    • 10. Bake at 375º for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Once they are cool you can cut them into small bite size pieces or shorter logs.



    • 11. Logs freeze well.
