Easy to prepare and designed to make a small amount, these squares are a marvelous blend of flavors. It's a dessert that can be stirred up in no time to satisfy a sweet tooth...warm from the oven or as a treat later. -Veronica Roza, Bayport, New York

"I had to use almost a whole jar of apricot preserves. 3/4 cup was not enough to cover the 8 x 8 pan. It wasn't very tasty."
