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.
These tasted very good --nice and light. I did have problems with the dough, very sticky and hard to spread. And it was hard to spread the jam without pulling up the crust. I did not use butter, but butter-flavor Crisco stick, so this could be the problem. But again, they were very tasty -- I made them yesterday for a cookie tray for my boss' 40th b-day -- and I would make them again using butter this time. I would also try a different flavor jam over half so you have a variety.
