Granny's Apricot Pudding

I found this recipe in a Washington Cookbook. Since I love anything with dried apricots I had to try it. This comes out alot like the traditional banana pudding, only better!

1 package dried apricots
3/4 cup sugar
pinch salt
3 Tablespoons flour
3 eggs, seperated
1 Tablespoon butter
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package vanilla wafers

Cook the apricots in very little water, then grind or sieve. Cook together until thickened; sugar, salt, flour, egg yolks, butter, milk and vanilla. Beat the egg whites and fold into cooled custard. Set aside. Crush vanilla wafers with a rolling pin(?) until they are crumbs. In serving dish, alternate layers of wafer crumbs, custard, and apricots. Top with wafer crumbs and serve chilled with whipped cream.
