For the second time this month, I’ve made something from Baked Explorations that I probably wouldn’t have picked to make (apricot, not my favorite). And again, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I like these little bars a lot. The rosemary short dough is quick and easy to make and isn’t overpoweringly herb-y. It’s just right – people that tried these couldn’t quite place the rosemary, but they knew there was something unique about the flavor. The apricot filling is a nice foil for the shortbread crust, and there’s nothing not to like about a crumb topping.
There isn’t anything complicated about making these, although it takes some time and advance planning. I made the dough and put it in the fridge one day, then finished off the filling and crumb topping the next day.

Like you, this is not a recipe I ever would have picked for myself, but I’m so glad this group got me to try it out. This recipe is definitely one I will come back to. Your bars look beautiful!
My tasters weren’t able to pick up the rosemary until I told them either, but loved them! Great photos!
Yep…these were uniquely delicious! Your crumb topping looks great!
