Cookie bars with fresh apricots

22 Aug

I had a craving for some sweet, but not too sweet. We had apricots, so I made a thin cookie batter that cooked up almost like a brownie. Not bad! One tip: Let cool completely before eating. The tastes come out more when cool as opposed to fresh from the oven.

8 apricots, cut in half
1/4 cup of butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup flour

Whisk together the melted butter, milk and sugar in a bowl. Add the egg and whisk. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, mix it all together.

Pour into an 8×8 pan and spread evenly. Place apricot halves on top, pressing in gently. Bake in preheated oven for 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
