3/4  cup  dried apricots
1  cup  water
1/2  cup  margarine
1/4  cup  sugar
1 1/3  cups  all-purpose flour
1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
1  cup  packed brown sugar
2  large  eggs
1  teaspoon  vanilla extract

* Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with margarine. 1. Place apricots and 1 cup water into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until apricots are tender. Drain and let cool. 2. Fit steel knife blade into the work bowl of a food processor. Into the work bowl combine margarine, granulated sugar and 1 cup flour. Process until smooth. Spread into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees. 3. With steel knife still attached, process drained apricots until chopped into 1/4-inch pieces. Add 1/3 cup flour, baking powder, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Process until mixed well, about 6-8 seconds. 4. Remove crust from oven, spread apricot mixture evenly over baked crust and return to oven for 30 minutes longer. 5. Let cool, then cut into 2-inch squares. Yield: 16 two-inch squares.

For a rich, delicious dessert, cut into larger pieces and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
