Nutty Oatmeal Apricot Squares
To help the preserves spread easier on the raw crust, heat them up for a few seconds in the microwave to loosen them up.
To make without using a food processor, use chopped pecans and instant oats instead of old fashioned and pecan halves. Combine all the ingredients except butter and preserves in a large bowl. Cut in cold cubed butter with pastry blender or fork until the butter is the size of small peas. Proceed with the rest of the recipe as written.
