These were pretty good! They were my first bar, so I don't really know what to compare them with, but overall they were tasty! I added 2 handfuls of chopped pecans to the top layer and when the bars cooled I also sprinkled powdered sugar over the top. Next time I'll try a berry preserves and some real fruit. The jam seemed a little bit sweet for me, so sugarless might work well. The texture and flavor was great though! My grandparents didn't even know that I used "fake" sugar! It'll be my little secret. =)
My diabetic and non-diabetic family members liked these a lot. I decided to use sugar-free blackberry jam instead of the apricot. I made them a week ago and they are still good.
Added walnuts, substituted Raspberry spread, and used whole wheat flour instead. It was delicious, will make this again for sure!
Made this for a diabetic friend and they loved it! They even requested the recipe.
I will make again but might try using almond extract instead of the vanilla and use sliced almonds in the topping.
this recipe is excellent!! i used smuckers simple 100% apricot preserves and i coarse chopped some dried apricots to add some body to it. i also mixed some sliced almonds into the flour mixture to add a bit of crunch and sprinkled some on the top. wonderful recipe, really.
