Apricot Delight

Comment on this recipe

Can use salted crackers if desired. Dessert is delicious alone, better with non-dairy whipped topping; even better with a small scoop of lite vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1-1/2 cups crushed, unsalted soda crackers
2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cans apricot pie filling

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, crackers, coconut, sugar and baking powder all together. Add melted butter and mix all combined ingredients thoroughly. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch pan/dish. Place 2/3 of combined ingredients in the pan/dish, pressing down firmly, making a "crust." Pour 2 cans of apricot pie filling onto the "crust," spreading filling evenly over "crust." Cover filling with remaining ingredients. Bake for 30 minutes. Serves 12.
