Winning Apricot Bars
The title of these Winning Apricot Bars says it all really – they are prize winning! No seriously, I entered them in my son’s school charity bake off last year and they won first prize! They are so easy to make too – simply make some dough by creaming some butter and sugar. Then add the egg, vanilla, flour, coconut and walnuts.
The recipe uses apricot preserves as a topping and I love to use my Apricot Jam for this. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to make your own though – store bought preserves will work just fine too! Spread the preserves on top of the dough and bake for 30-35 minutes. So simple, so delicious!
