Apricot Crisp Bars

  • 4 C chopped apricots (or any other stone fruit you have on hand)
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbs. arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 C flour
  • 1-1/2 C old fashioned oats
  • 1 C light brown sugar
  • 1 C melted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the fruit in a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, cinnamon, salt, cornstarch and almond extract. Stir to combine and then let rest on the counter while preparing the crust.

In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the flour, starch, oats and brown sugar. Add the melted butter and stir to combine. Press half of this mixture into a well-buttered or parchment lined 9x13-inch pan. Pour the fruit over the bottom crust and then sprinkle the rest of the dry mixture on top.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the crust turns golden brown. Serve warm from the oven or let cool completely and slice int servings.
