For the best results, measure your flour by weight instead of volume. (1 cup of all-purpose flour equals 4-1/2 oz.) If you don’t have a scale, be sure to use the proper technique when filling your measuring cups.
I followed the recipe exactly and really liked the crisp bottom crust and the apricot filling. The bars were very sweet, though, too sweet for my taste. If I make them again, I'll cut back on the sugar and use semi-sweet or unsweetened chocolate bits instead of white chocolate, as suggested by another reviewer.
