2 6 oz. pkgs dried apricots
1 cup sugar
Glaze frosting
2 cups shifted powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk

Place apricots in a medium saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; add 1 cup sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves.

Position knife blade in food processor bowl; add apricot mixture. Pulse 3 or 4 times or until smooth; cover and chill.

Make bread dough. Divide dough in half. Roll one portion of dough into an 18 x 9 inch rectangle. Spread half of apricot mixture over dough to within 1/2 inch of sides. Roll up dough, starting at long side, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 1 1/2-inch slices. Place, cut side up, in greased muffin pans. Repeat procedure with remaining dough and apricot mixture.

Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans immediately, and place on wire racks.

Combine powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons milk, stirring until smooth. Drizzle glaze over warm rolls. Let cool completely on wire racks.
