Apricot COOKIES

Now Try to bake these things — a quick and tasty! Originally the recipe proposed date-stuffing, but I have at the moment of dates was not at home. So I made with apricot. It is a little sour, but I love this. On a date, probably will be more sweet. These squares can be stored for over a week. I have always been a fact in recipes touches. Well, except the delicious things will be a week to lie? Unless they hide themselves away from 🙂

1 cup of juice (equal parts of orange and apple) (Approx. I use all that is at hand, or even juice 0.5 0.5 water)
cinnamon (to taste)

How to cook
1. First, prepare the stuffing. To do this, connect all components in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes (see the consistency should be thick). Cool.
2. Turn on the oven to 350 F (176 C). Grease a 8 * 8 inches square (I still enclose a piece of paper). In a cup, mix the flour, cereal, sugar and soda. Add the butter, cut into small pieces, and rub your hands until the mass extinction pieces.
3. Place 2/3 of the mixture into a mold, good hands Xpress bottom and do a little bit at the edges stenochki. Top with stuffing evenly. Close the remaining mixture.

Comments and clarifications:
1 US cup = 237 ml. If you vozmet as a measure of his cup, and it will measure and flour and oatmeal, and all the rest (where the cup is indicated), the proportions remain and everything will be fine.

Soda quenching is not necessary, simply mix with flour and cereals. Frankly, it is unclear what role it plays, as This cake does not rise, because test, in a familiar concept, is not here. Just as though this baby.

You can use any toppings of your choice, but do not spread.
As for sugar. Brown still is light brown and dark brown. In fact, brown sugar, the same white, only crude. It contains additional molasses, and a variety of herbal supplements that give the sugar a little different flavor than white. To change the brown to white used these proportions: 1 cup brown sugar = 1 cup + 2 tablespoons white. l. treacle (molasses).

The dough is a little crumbling, because there is a link only to oil. It is important that the mixture is well rammed into shape to it when baking speckle together. Cutting the need to have cooled down slightly. It is very convenient to put on the bottom of the parchment paper to the ends raised above the pie. I was cut directly in the form of a sharp knife, then took over the paper patty spatula and laid the pieces on the plate.
