Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Mix ground apricots, preserves and 1/4 cup of sugar together in a bowl. Set Aside

Lightly roll out puff pastry sheets ( you should have 4 rectangles). Cut each rectangle into thirds, (you will have 12 oblong rectangles of dough).

Add bread crumbs to apricot mixture.

With a spoon fill the center of each oblong strip with apricot mixture. Wash edges with egg whites and fold dough over to form a long roll, sealing all edges.

Finish all dough strips in this manner and then cut each oblong into thirds. (you should have 36 logs)

Place logs on prepared cookie sheets (spray with nonstick spray before hand).
Brush tops of logs with egg white and sprinkle with sugar crystal or regular sugar.

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake an additional 6 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Logs freeze well.

Personal Notes:
The Nut Tree was a terrific restaurant/store located on Interstate 80 in Vacaville, Ca. A very popular place to pull over and enjoy snacks, entertainment or just stretching your legs. These logs were very popular and I remember my mom having to stop there on every visit (both coming and going!) just to get some. Here's to you Flo !
