    Jen T's Note:

    I adopted this recipe late 2005 and finally made it in February 2006. I haven't changed a thing as it is great the way it is written. This slice has a shortcake like base with a cake-like apricot caramel top. Goes well with a dollop of whipped cream on top for a treat or dessert or leave plain and enjoy. :)

      This is a really great recipe! I had it clipped from a magazine and in an old recipe folder. When I went to post it I found that you already had. So thanks for saving me the time of typing it out! :) We love apricots, and this is one of our favorites
