Apricot Delights Recipe | Sweet Treats |

Makes: 12 rolls
Proof Time: 1 hour, 25 minutes
Bake Time: 20 to 25 minutes

3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter OR margarine
1 large egg 
Apricot-Pecan Filling
2 cups fresh apricots, chopped
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons Karo® Light Corn Syrup
1 tablespoon Argo® Corn Starch
1/2 cup chopped pecans 
Egg Glaze
1 egg white, beaten with
1 tablespoon water
Powdered Sugar Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat water, milk and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF).  Gradually add to flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of  electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 equal portions; shape each into a ball.  Place on greased large baking sheet 2 inches apart.  Cover; let rest 15 minutes.  Make a deep and wide indentation on each ball by pushing outward toward edge, leaving 1/2-inch ridge around outside.  Fill with about 1 tablespoon Apricot Pecan Filling.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Brush dough with Egg Glaze.   Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done.  Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack.   Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze.

Apricot-Pecan Filling
Combine apricots, water, corn syrup, and cornstarch in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Cook about 3 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat; stir in pecans.  Let cool.

Powdered Sugar Glaze
In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk.  Stir until smooth.
