Cookie Primary

The unfortunately named Yankee Magazine is holding the "first-in-the-nation primary for the presidential candidates' best cookies." Cast your vote here.

Naturally, I liked Ron Paul's choice:
    Carol Paul's (Mrs. Ron Paul) Apricot-Coconut Balls

    You don't have to bake these and they look so pretty on a Christmas cookie tray -- so good!

    • 8 ounces dried apricots (chop in food processor)
    • 2/3 cup coconut
    • 2/3 cup condensed milk
    • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

    Mix dried apricots with coconut. Add condensed milk and chopped pecans. Roll in small balls and then in confectioners sugar and refrigerate.
It's interesting to note that Paul's selection reflects his recipe for politics: straightforward, simplistic, and not a lot of fluff. Coincidence? I think not!

Bake in overheated 911-degree oven until crusty and overdone.

Serves 911 delegates (in small portions).
