Expert Tips

Go ahead and try dried cranberries or cherries instead of the apricots.

For a tidy stack, be sure the breads are similar in size. They'll stack evenly and can be cut into uniform triangles.

Add a bit of green to these sandwiches by tucking in watercress, mâche, romaine or oakleaf lettuce leaves.
