Apricot Nut Bars

Directions

  1. For crust, in a medium mixing bowl combine the 1 cup flour and salt. Cut in the 1/4 cup margarine or butter until crumbly; press into the bottom of a lightly greased 11x7x1-1/2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 375 degree F. oven for 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine apricots and enough water to cover. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes; drain. In a large mixing bowl stir together brown sugar and eggs until combined. Stir in drained apricots, the 1 cup walnuts, the coconut, and vanilla. Add the 2 tablespoons flour; stir until combined. Spread apricot mixture evenly over baked crust. Bake in the 375 degree F. oven for 15 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  3. For frosting, in a medium mixing bowl, beat the 2 tablespoons margarine or butter and the orange peel with an electric mixer until combined. At low speed, gradually beat in the 1-1/4 cups powdered sugar. Add orange juice, a little at a time, until mixture is of spreading consistency. Spread frosting over cooled bars in pan. Sprinkle with the 1/2 cup walnuts.
