My brother Brian and I made these and they are really good. You feel like you are getting something healthy with something so very yummy. 5 stars

I made this recipe and found it easy to follow as well as delicious.

Finding it was truly an act of divine providence. I think my sister Kath will like them too.

My mom and I make these every year. After cutting them into bars we roll them in powdered sugar - helps with the appearance. Sometimes it takes longer than 30 minutes for the apricot layer to cook. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
I made these today for Christmas and was terribly disappointed. Not only are they syrupy sweet and greasy, but they are very unattractive. I couldn't help but think that something was missing or incorrect about the recipe itself. 1 star

Would make this again.
The recipe has a wording problem that makes it unclear when to add the apricots. In the 1st paragraph it says "Mix with following using fork" which makes it sound like the apricots go into the crust mixture; down below, you see that the apricots are actually added into the egg mixture. The first paragraph should say, "mix the following" (to make the crust-like base). 5 stars

These are great. I would probably reduce the brown sugar and possible use light brown sugar. Although these were great, I couldn't taste the apricots. The dough is really great. 4 stars

Would make this again.
An interesting variation that I learned from my grandmother:
Bake the first layer and then spread a cup of apricot preserves--warming it in the microwave makes it easier to spread-over that baked layer and sprinkle it with the half cup of chopped walnuts. Then mix the 2nd layer of dough, omitting the dried apricot mixture, and bake as described. They truely are incredibly great bars!!!

Love apricots, love these bars, easy to make and so good. I will be making them again before Christmas. Thanks 5 stars

These bars are wonderful. The tart/sweet flavor of the Apricots are accentuated when baked. For best results use dehydrated apricots and boil them in water for a couple of minutes. You can also eliminate the nuts if you do not like nuts. Yummy 5 stars
