  • Summary

    Simmered dried apricots with a hint of vanilla are a perfect combination of tart and sweet. (We tested apricot jam in this filling, and it wasn't the same!) The mixture is slathered on rounds of cream-cheese dough, which is sliced into wedges and rolled into crescents before baking. The dough and filling can be made a couple of days in advance and refrigerated to make assembly easier (the dough disks wrapped in plastic, the filling in an airtight container).

    Ingredients

    • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 2 cups dried apricots
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Pinch of kosher salt
    • 1 cup shelled pistachios, preferably Sicilian
    • 1 large egg, lightly whisked
    • Sanding sugar, for sprinkling
