Nabisco Apricot Dessert

Comment on this recipe

*The "long pan" was my mother's designation, as she had such a pan. However, few modern cooks own such a pan. I have made it using two 8x10-inch pans.

Ingredients

2 packages (1 pound) Nabisco wafers, crushed fine
2-1/4 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup softened butter
4 eggs
1/2 pound English walnuts, chopped
1-1/2 pounds dried apricots, cooked and chopped
3 cups whipping cream, whipped

Instructions

Layer one pound of crushed wafers in a long pan*. Combine sugar, butter and eggs; layer over wafers. Layer walnuts over sugar mixture. Spread apricots over nuts. Spread whipped cream over apricots. Top with another layer of crushed wafers. Chill. Cut into squares. Serves 24 generously.
