Project Dessert

Started going Through a 200 page dessert book 1-at-a-time daily until i got to #80 and the recipes were getting horrible so #100-#200 will be desserts i find that look interesting to make...enjoy!



Price to make: $2.88

Yield: 8x8 pan

Time: Prep – 10 minutes, Cook – 30 minutes


8oz margarine

1 cup sugar

2 egg yolks

2 cups flour

1 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup apricot preserves

  • Cream margarine.
  • Gradually add sugar, and then egg yolks.
  • Blend mixture well.
  • Gradually add flour.
  • Fold in most of the nuts, while saving some for topping.
  • Spread half of batter into 8x8 pan.
  • Spread apricot preserves on top and then rest of batter.
  • Top with remaining nuts.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until  lightly brown on top.
  • Cut into bars while still warm.

Tips: After spreading half of batter and the apricot preserves I found it very difficult to spread the other half of batter. When I tried it just pushed around the apricot has the batter is thick and the apricot very soft. Once the bars were done and cooled down they got a little tough to work with as I had cut them and then left them in the pan. When I finally got them out they tasted really good!
