Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
cup brown sugar
*
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups apricots, dried
*
1 tablespoon walnuts
chopped
1 tablespoon cashew nuts
chopped
*
cup maple syrup
Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon apple juice

Directions

Sift together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder & salt. Stir in the apricots & nuts. Add the syrup. Stir until the mixture forms a thick batter.

Spread the batter into a lightly oiled 8" X 8" baking pan (it is hard work, but it will cover -- trust me!).

Bake at 350℉ (180℃) for 30 to 35 minutes or until the bars test done. Allow to cool slightly, cut into bars. When completely cool, spread with icing & drizzle some melted chocolate over the top if desired.

ICING: Cream together sugar & shortening. Add remaining ingredients & beat until smooth. Makes ½ cup.
