Top Review by Baby Kato

These are so good Kibbie, thank you so much for sharing. We loved this delicious little gem. A beautiful looking square, nice crisp cookie/shortbread crust, yummy semi tart apricot jam and the topping, oh baby...tastes like meriange & marshmallows combined. Very easy to make and it didn't take long. I used margarine, it worked great. I found it very easy to prepare. I will definitely make this again and again. The only change I did was to omit the nuts because my dh is allergic, so I topped with coconut. A new family favourite.
