DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In medium saucepan, combine apricots and water; simmer, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 25 minutes or until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Cool.
  • While apricots are simmering, make the crust: Place 2 cups flour, walnuts, and and 3/4 cup powdered sugar in food processor; process until blended and nuts are finely chopped. Add butter; process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (DO NOT process until mixture becomes smooth). Reserve 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture. Press remaining mixture in bottom of pan.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned around edges.
  • While crust is baking, finish making the filling: Place cooked apricots in same food processor (you do NOT need to wash it first). Add eggs, lemon juice, sugar, 1/3 cup flour and salt; process until blended.
  • Pour filling over crust. Sprinkle reserved 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture over the top. Return to oven; bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes, or until filling is set and top is light brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
