Apricot Oatmeal Bars

These delicious bar cookies may have been in a old newsletter, but I don't have a name on it, or a date. They have been a favorite over the years.

Apricot Oatmeal Bars

Crumb Mixture:
1-14 cups flour
1-1/4 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla

1 jar (10 oz.) apricot preserves
1/2 cup flaked coconut

For crumb mixture, in large mixer bowl combine all the crumb ingredients. Beat at low speed of electric mixer until mixture is in crumbs, 1 to 2 minutes, scraping bowl often. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13
inch baking pan.

For filling, spread apricot preserves to within 1/2 inch from the edge of crumb mixture. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs and coconut (I mixed the coconut into the reserved crumbs before putting on the top). Bake 350° for 22 to 25 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Makes about 3 dozen bars.
