Apricot Bars

Author/Submitted by:

Categories: Bars / Desserts / Low-Fat/Low-Cal

1  cup  White flour
1/3  cup  Brown sugar
1  teaspoon  Cinnamon
1/2  teaspoon  Baking powder
1/4  teaspoon  Salt
1 1/2  cups  Dried apricots
1  tablespoon  Walnuts, chopped
1  tablespoon  Cashews, chopped
1/3  cup  Maple syrup
1  cup  Icing sugar
2  tablespoons  Shortening
1/2  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 1/2 cup. Recipe by Mark Satterly
