      I must say these took a bit more effort than the average bar type treat, but it was worth it I think. I didnt have pumpkin pie spice so I added equal parts cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice (about a dash of each). These did taste better the next day as other have mentioned too.

      I love apricots and raisins so had to give this recipe a try. Very easy to make and enjoyed the rolled oat crust and topping. These bars reminded me of a fruitcake type cookie I used to get at our local Polish bakery. Enjoyed these with my morning coffee and will be making them again. Thanks Syd for another great recipe!

      Just pulled this out of the oven. My DD just could not wait to have a piece. So she let it cool for maybe all of 5 minutes. I liked the apricot/raisin mixture. The next day this bar tastes even better. The topping came out perfect I thought. Some of the oats would drop off but I'd not call it dry. Maybe a person could drop a few pieces of butter on top if they wanted it to stick together more. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2007 game
