Apricot Bars Recipe
1 c white flour
1/3 c brown sugar
1 ts cinnamon
1/2 ts baking powder
1/4 ts salt
1-1/2 c dried apricots
1 tb walnuts, chopped
1 tb cashews,
1/3 c maple syrup
1 c Icing sugar
1/2 ts Vanilla
together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking
powder & salt. Stir in the apricots &
nuts. Add the syrup. Stir until the
mixture forms a thick batter.
Spread the batter into a lightly oiled
8" X 8" baking pan (it is hard work, but
it will cover -- trust me!). Bake at
350F for 30 to 35 minutes or until the
bars test done. Allow to cool slightly,
cut into bars. When completely cool,
spread with icing & drizzle some melted
chocolate over the top if desired.
Cream together sugar &
shortening. Add remaining ingredients &
beat until smooth.
