Apricot Bars

One evening after our youngest baby was born, a friend of mine (Diane Carter) brought us dinner and dessert. My niece was visiting at the time and we both agreed we had to have the recipe.

Apricot Jam
Powdered Sugar
Crust / Topping:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup butter

Mix flour, sugar, salt, powder, oats and butter until crumbly. Pat 2/3 mixture into 11×7 inch pan. Spread with 1 cup apricot jam. Top with remaining crumb mixture. Bake at 325 degrees about 35 minutes. Sprinkle with powder sugar. Cut when cool.
