Apricot bars

Yield: 18 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup White flour
⅓ cup Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Baking powder
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 cup Icing sugar
2 tablespoons Shortening
1½ cup Dried apricots
1 tablespoon Walnuts -- chopped
1 tablespoon Cashews -- chopped
⅓ cup Maple syrup
½ teaspoon Vanilla
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.
