Apricot Snowball Cookies Recipe

Use a rolling pin to crush 2 cups of cornflakes, bran, or wheat flakes between two sheets of wax paper. Then stir the crushed flakes, 1/3 cup of diced pitted dates, 2/3 cup of diced dried California apricots, and 1/2 cup of chopped pecans together in a large bowl until they're well mixed. Melt 1/4 cup of honey and 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine together in a small pan, and blend in 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Pour the blend over the cornflake mixture, mix thoroughly, and chill 30 minutes. Use 1 tablespoon of the chilled recipe to form each ball, roll the balls in granulated sugar (if desired), and garnish each one (there'll be about 30) with a strip of dried apricot, or a red glace' cherry half. Serve immediately, cover and chill until needed, or pack the Apricot Snowballs inside a candy jar or decorative bowl and carry to your favorite neighbor.
