Fold each apricot half around 1 whole almond. Wrap 1 bacon piece around each stuffed apricot. Secure with wooden picks. Place on a wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.
Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp, turning once.
Microwave preserves, soy sauce, and pepper in a small microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM 1 minute or until preserves are melted. Serve dipping sauce with stuffed apricots.
I just got this recipe from a friend who brought it to a party this weekend. A perfect combination of sweet and salty...LOVED THEM!!
