Reviews forAlmond Apricot Bars
"My friends and family rave about these bars and I have made them many times with the apricot jam only. Can't wait to try the raspberry jam."
"I would love to make this, however, I don't know what "white baking chips" are and where I can find them. I would appreciate your response to my inquiry. Thank you."
"I have been making Razz Ma Tazz Bars for years, they are basically this recipe but with Seedless Raspberry instead. I have made it several times with Apricot and either way it's a huge hit! YOU MUST MAKE THESE!"
"I love the vanilla component. It's a nice blend of flavors."
