Apricot Bars I
I tried these to use up a huge jar of apricot preserves and some pine nuts that needed to go. I toasted the pine nuts during the first bake (dry skillet on medium for a few minutes, shaking & flipping about every 30 seconds). I thought the bars were pretty good. Two flaws for me: 1, they're a little too sweet for my taste and 2, the baking times didn't work for me - the bars *looked* nicely done with the instructed times, but the middle was still really soft and gooey when I cut into them. I did forget to score the bars before the second bake, so maybe that's my issue. They're back in the oven again (missing one piece!) and I'm afraid to burn the edges while trying to get the middle cooked.
