It has been said that apricots contain more nutrients than any other

fruit, but don't tell the kids. They'll just think it's a

great-tasting dessert.

1-1/2 cups dried apricots

1-1/2 cups yogurt

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons chopped pecans

Soak the dried apricots with hot water for about a half hour. Drain

and combine the apricots with the other ingredients in a food

processor. Mix until a smooth consistency is reached.

Chill and serve with your favorite nuts sprinkled over each serving.


Here's another dessert recipe that's quick to make-it's very rich. You

can add a little vanilla extract for a little more flavor if you wish.

4 cups milk--skim if you prefer

1/2 cup sugar

2 ounces rice flour

6 drops rose water

1 ounce almonds

Combine the rice flour with the milk slowly, making sure to mix until

smooth. Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes or until it reaches

a creamy consistency. Add sugar and let simmer for 10 more minutes.

Using a food processor, chop the almonds finely.

Add the nuts and rose water to the mixture and let cool for at least

an hour.
