Almond Apricot Bars Recipe

Apricot jam provides the fruit flavor in this small pan of sweet dessert bars shared by Olga Wolkosky of Richmond, British Columbia. "They freeze well and are always a hit," she relates. "They're also good with seedless raspberry jam instead."

"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!"
