Cookie bars with fresh apricots

I had a craving for some sweet, but not too sweet. We had apricots, so I made a thin cookie batter that cooked up almost like a brownie. Not bad! One tip: Let cool completely before eating. The tastes come out more when cool as opposed to fresh from the oven.

8 apricots, cut in half
1/4 cup of butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup flour

Whisk together the melted butter, milk and sugar in a bowl. Add the egg and whisk. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, mix it all together.

Pour into an 8x8 pan and spread evenly. Place apricot halves on top, pressing in gently. Bake in preheated oven for 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
