Apricot Crumb Bars

Apricot Crumb Bars

Let me just start out by saying...these are delicious! They are made with 1 1/2 cups of cooking oats to create a nice healthy crisp crumb crust. The Apricot flavor is perfectly balanced with the crumb topping! These are great because they are not too sweet.


The Recipe

Apricot Crumb Bars Recipe


1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup chilled butter
1 16 oz. jar of apricot preserves

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and oats. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Press 2/3 of the mixture on bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. Spread preserves on top (if they are too thick add a few teaspoons of water until they have reached spreading consistency.) Sprinkle with remaining crumbs and bake at 350 degrees over for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Makes about 2 dozen squares.
