My dried apricots and pour it a couple of times with boiling water. If dried apricots do not soften, then leave it for 10-15 minutes in hot water. We take two eggs and separate the proteins from the yolks. 1 egg, 2 yolks, sugar and softened butter whisk with a mixer. Without stopping to whip add 1 cup of flour Now sprinkle another 0.5 cups of flour and knead the dough with your hands. Divide the dough into 2 parts. From each part we roll a thin layer, on which, using a mold or a small circle, we cut out circles. We shift the billets for the biscuits to a baking sheet covered with baking paper, oiled and sprinkled with flour. Preheat oven to 200 ° C Bake biscuits 15 minutes before even blushing. While the cookies are baked, we make the filling and meringue. For meringue, whisk the proteins into a thick foam. During whipping gradually pour sugar into the proteins. Beat to soft peaks. Then add lemon juice and whisk already to strong peaks. Nuts chopped in a coffee grinder. Gently knead the nuts in the meringue and put it into the confectionery syringe. We take cookies from the oven, reduce the temperature to 120 ° C. For each cookie we put a layer of meringue. Cut dried apricots into quarters and put them into the center of each cookie. We put cookies in the oven for another half an hour - until the mice are ready. Bon Appetit!
