I have recently been trying to clear out my cupboards and have come to the conclusion I am a bit of a hoarder. I seem to have half packets of ingredients I bought in order to make one recipe and never got round to using the rest of. I need to make some space so rather than buying new ingredients I have been searching for uses for what I already have. This week I found a half empty packet of dried apricots lurking at the back of the cupboard. I think I bought them to decorate a ginger and pineapple cake and they have been lurking unused every since.
I came up with an idea for Apricot Slices, which is a variant on caramel slices. They have a biscuit base and the top is a mix of apricots and other things. This makes for a rather nice fruity type biscuit flapjack. I was very pleased with them and they were actually quite simple to make.
