These blonde fruit brownies are a nice change of pace from the chocolate ones.

These have been a favorite at our house for years. They often surprise people who didn't know they liked apricots!. Yummy!

THESE ARE AWESOME! What a great alternative to a brownie or a plain old blondie. They're pretty on a dessert plate and the flavor is just fantastic. I'll definitely make these again!

My husband loves Apricot so I tried this recipe. It is good but very expensive to make so I will only make it for Christmas or special occasions.
