Aunty Winnie's Apricot Slice

What would a gathering of friends be without FOOD; as requested by all attending WCMD here's the recipe:
  • Soak 1 cup dried apricots in boiling water until soft; drain well.
  • Cream 8 oz butter and 1 cup sugar
  • Beat in 2 eggs
  • Sift & add 3 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder & a pinch of salt
  • Add drained apricots. Mix well
Put in a flat tin & bake 325oF/160oC for 30 minutes.

ICING: Boil 3 Tbsp milk & 3 Tbsp butter & 1-2 Tbsp sugar for ~2 minutes. Cool slightly and add lots of vanilla essence, touch of lemon juice & enough icing sugar to make a spreadable consistency. Ice slice whilst fairly warm, cut into squares when nearly cold.

Yes Aunty Winnie was a lovely lady who I spent most of my school holidays with in Huntly. She taught me to cook (which think I can do) & to crochet & knit (neither of which I can still do). PS her real name was Hilda!
