|1 cup||White flour|
|⅓ cup||Brown sugar|
|½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|1 cup||Icing sugar|
|1½ cup||Dried apricots|
|1 tablespoon||Walnuts -- chopped|
|1 tablespoon||Cashews -- chopped|
|⅓ cup||Maple syrup|
|1 tablespoon||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.
ICING: Cream together sugar & shortening. Add remaining ingredients & beat until smooth. Makes ½ cup.
