Total Time



1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup uncooked quick cooking oats


3/4 cup finely chopped dried apricots

1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1/3 cup butterscotch or caramel ice cream topping

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray bottom and sides of 9-inch square baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter and brown sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add 1 cup flour and oats. Beat until well mixed. Reserve 1/2 cup mixture. Press remaining mixture into prepared pan; top with apricots and nuts.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine ice cream topping and 2 tablespoons flour in bowl. Microwave 30-45 seconds or until bubbly; stir. Pour over apricots and nuts. Top with reserved oat mixture.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 16-19 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Cool completely; cut into bars.

Tip #1

Look for Turkish or Mediterranean dried apricots. They are plumper and softer than other types of dried apricots.
