   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           pecan halves -- chopped
      1/2  cup           margarine -- melted
      1/2  cup           dried apricots
      1/2  cup           packed brown sugar
    1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
    2      cups          biscuit mix
      2/3  cup           milk
 
 Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
 
      1. Fit the steel knife blade into the work bowl. Process the pecans until
 chopped into 1/8-inch pieces. Distribute chopped pecans evenly in muffin cups.
 Put 2 teaspoons melted margarine in each cup.
      2. With the steel knife blade still attached, process apricots until
 chopped into 1/4-inch pieces. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, biscuit mix and milk.
 Process until batter is well mixed, 10-15 seconds, stopping machine once to
 scrape down sides of bowl with rubber spatula. Pieces of apricots should still
 be visible.
      3. Drop by spoonfuls into muffin cups. Bake until a wooden pick inserted
 in center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Do not push pick all
 the way to bottom. Remove from oven and invert muffin pan on a serving plate.
 DO NOT remove pan; let stand 10 minutes so pecans and margarine will drop down
 onto muffins.
 
 Yield: 12 muffins.
