  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch square pan.
  2. Place apricots and enough water to cover in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and cool, then chop coarsely.
  3. Cream together the butter, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 cup flour until crumbly. Sprinkle the mixture into the prepared pan, and pack down. Bake in the preheated oven until firm and slightly golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs and brown sugar until well blended. Combine 1/3 cup flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the egg mixture. Mix in vanilla, walnuts and apricots. Spread mixture over baked layer.
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm. Let cool on wire racks. Cut into bars and dip in confectioners' sugar.

I followed the directions exactly. I was careful to completely drain the apricots after boiling on paper towels. Because of what the other reviews said about them being too gooey I was kept the...

I absolutely love apricot bars--but these are just nasty. Gooey, to put it mildly; overly sweet. Almost too messy to cut. I will NOT make them again; the recipe belongs in the trash. If the ...

I made it with Splenda White and Brown sugars and it was excellent!

I give these 5 stars because they were super easy to make and my mom had one and called it "unbelievable". They were that good! So ooey and gooey and delicious, and came out of the pan perfect...

Too sweet, the brown sugar over powered the taste of the apricots.

Too sweet.
