At first when I made these, I ate it right out of the oven. Bad mistake, didn't taste very well, and it kinda slid apart. But once they cooled off they were awesome. I will make again, but I would undercook the first layer by a minute or 2. I cooked it until done, and by the time the second cooking was done, the bottom layer was a little "over" done. I will also melt the apricot jam in the microwave before spreading it over the first layer. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

apricots and white chocolate has now become my new favorite combination! wow, worth gaining weight, my guests did not believe that these exquisite squares were not from a gourmet bakery. and to make it even better they are very simple to make.
