Combine: 2 cups cooked dried apricots
cup sugar
cup juice from cooked apricots. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until slightly
thickened. Cool and mash.
Sift together: 2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon soda
Cream cup butter and gradually add
1 cup sugar
Blend in dry ingredients to form a crumb mixture.
Stir in 1 cups coconut
cup chopped nuts
Press 3 cups crumb mixture into and half way up of a 9x13 pan.
Bake at 400 for 10 minutes
Spread apricot mixture over partially baked crust. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over apricots. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.

First place the dried apricots in a pan and cover them with water. Simmer them for about 10 to 15 minutes until they begin to soften. To have enough apricots it will probably take 2 bags. Any left over apricots are wonderful on toast.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
It is best with Sunkist California Dried Apricots. Mediterranean apricots do not have the flavor of the California apricots and do effect the outcome greatly.
