Apricot Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Top Review by Angela Curtis

I love that these were not only easy to make, but involved no refined sugar at all. They smell delicious out of the oven, but I had to refrigerate them for a few days as the occasion I had made them for was delayed. I tried to get them out of the refrigerator early, to give them a chance to go to room temperature. My husband tried one small bite and refused to eat any more, insisting it was bitter. My 3 year old refused to try it. My husband eats a great deal of refined food, so this may account for his reaction. I enjoyed them, but could understand where he got the bitter idea from. Everyone else enjoyed them and out of the 4 adults and one child that ate them all but one were gone. That one that was left, I let sit out (covered) overnight to see if it affected the taste. It was much better, smooth and delicious. Next time I make these, I'll not refrigerate, or remove them from the refrigerator the night before. I followed the recipe exactly, using raw honey. I plan on making variations, including using applesauce instead of oil or peaches and pecans instead of apricots and walnuts. This a great recipe, thanks a lot!
