Divide each chilled slab into 2 pieces (4 total)
Roll each one out to a thin, long rectangle about 4" x 8", 1/8" thick.
Using a pizza cutter or knife, Cut triangles
Spread a thin layer of Apricot jam across triangle & spoon about 1 teaspoon or so on the wide end. Roll up starting with the wide end & form into a crescent shape, making sure that the tip is on the bottom.
Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or silpat.
Bake for about 15-20 min until golden brown
Let it cool 1-2 min on the cookie sheet before transferring to wire rack to cool completely
Combine equal parts of powdered sugar with Lakanto (or other) powdered sugar substitute if wanting to reduce sugar amount.
Generously sift over the cooled cookies!
