Directions

  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.

Very good and easy to make. I didnt have dried apriocts so i simmered fresh ones in water and suagar until they were like a jam almost, and it turned out great!! takes a while the make, but definatly worth the time!

Strangely addictive. I used a bunch of fresh apricots and two small peaches for this, obviously not boiling but just chopping them up. Kept everything the same except because I had so much fruit I added more flour and baking powder to the egg/apricot part and they came out great. Don't forget to dip the top, sides, and bottoms of all bars in powdered sugar, adds a nice sweetness.

This was a great recipe, I used fresh apricots instead of dried and it turned out great! My family loved it, and the icing sugar on top is a must so don't skrimp! :)
