Apricot Bars Recipe

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, chopped
1/3 c maple syrup

1 c Icing sugar
2 tb Shortening
1/2 ts Vanilla
1 tb Apple juice

Sift 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.
Makes 1/2 cup.
Makes 18 bars
