1/2 cup finely snipped dried apricots

Ingredients Required for Icing:

1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 to 3 teaspoons of apricot nectar or OJ stirred together

To Prepare:

In a medium mixing bowl stir together dry ingredients.  In a smaller bowl stir together egg, apricot nectar, applesauce, and oil until combined.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixing bowl and stir only until mixed.  Then add the apricots.   Spread this mixture in an ungreased 11x7x11/2 baking dish.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes until a dry toothpick inserted into the middle of the dish will come out clean.  Cool in the dish on a wire rack.  Drizzle with the icing and cut into 24 bars.
