Dusk Apricot Bars

Jammy and delightful, these apricot bars are amazing for get-togethers.  Once you’ve had your first bite, try sprinkling just a touch extra Dusk on top- it adds a layer of brightness and spice that can’t be beat.

(This recipe also works very well with peach, raspberry, or cherry preserves).


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 10 oz Apricot Jam
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ tsp almond extract or Amaretto
  • 1 tsp Local Spicery’s Dusk
  • ¾ cup walnuts, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cream butter and sugar. Blend in egg yolk and extract. Add flour, Dusk, and walnuts. Mix well.
  2. Divide dough in half. Spread half evenly over bottom of 9×13 inch pan. Spread jam over dough. Drop remaining dough by small spoonfuls over the jam, spreading to the edges of the pan.
  3. Bake until top is golden, about 30-40 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting into squares.
