MAKES 24 LACTO Often served at the end of a meal with tiny cups of
dark Turkish coffee, these rich, sweet candies are regularly made to
have on hand for unexpected visitors. In Turkey, it's customary to
welcome the casual caller with hospitality at all times. In heavy
medium saucepan, combine apricots, water, sugar, butter and orange
flower water. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden
spoon, until mixture becomes a thick puree, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove
from heat and beat until smooth. Transfer mixture to a plate and
spread into an even circle, Allow to cool. Divide mixture into 24
equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Coat with chopped nuts and
place in small petit four papers if desired. Store in an airtight
container for up to 2 weeks. PER CANDY: 156 CAL.; 3G PROT.; 9G TOTAL
