- 8ounces dried apricots
- ½cup white sugar
- 2tablespoons lemon juice
- water to cover
- 1cup all-purpose flour
- 1cup rolled oats
- 1cup packed brown sugar
- ½cup butter
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 2Place apricots, lemon juice, white sugar in a small saucepan. Add enough water to just cover the apricots. Bring to a boil, and cook until fruit is soft. Chop coarsely.
Step 3Sift flour, oatmeal and brown sugar together. Melt butter or margarine over low heat and stir into flour mixture. Put 2/3 of this mixture into 8 x 8 inch greased pan. Spread apricot mixture over crust. Sprinkle remaining oatmeal mixture over apricots.
Step 4Bake for about 35 minutes.
