READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by mandabears

Just a wonderful combination of apricots, coconut, condensed milk to make a delicious fruity bar cookie. Sometimes I use a 6 ounce package Sunkist Fruit Bits instead of the apricots.

These are very tasty and easy bars- I did find the crust a bit dry and I only baked it for 20 minutes- next time I will try 15 minutes- baked with the filling for 30 minutes and maybe could cut back a few. They were not too brown- I used a dark pan lined with foil and reduced the oven temp. to 325. This recipe is a keeper though and I will make again.
