Yield :

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix above as pie dough or until crumbly.
  3. Pack into greased 8 x 8-inch pan.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes or until slightly brown.


  1. In a sauce pan place apricots in pot in enough water to cover, cook on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes. Drain; do not use liquid. Once cool cut into pieces, and set to side.
  2. In a bowl, mix brown sugar, granulated sugar and eggs; stir well. Then add flour, salt, baking powder, vanilla, pecans and hydrated apricots. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Spread apricot mixture over baked crust layer.
  4. Bake 30 minutes more at 350°F. Cool in pan.
  5. Cut into 9 equal bars; sift powdered sugar on top of each bar.

*For a fancy finish garnish each apricot bar with a dried apricot and whole pecan.
