Chewy apricot bars

Yield: 24 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Dried apricots -- finely
½ cup Golden seedless raisins
⅓ cup Water
1 cup All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
¼ teaspoon Baking soda
½ cup Black walnuts -- chopped
½ cup Crushed pineapple
2 larges Eggs
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
1 cup Sugar
Powdered sugar

1. Place apricots and raisins in a saucepan; cover with water. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. Drain well. 2. Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add chopped nuts, drained pineapple and drained cooked fruit to dry ingredients. Stir just enough to coat with flour. 3. Beat eggs with lemon juice until just foamy. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until just blended. Fold into the flour mixture. 4. Spread in well-greased 9-inch pan. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. 5. While still warm, cut into bars and dust with sifted powdered sugar.

Yield: about 24 bars.
