Incredibly delicious and easy! I recommend an 8 by 8 or 9 by 9 pan. I tried using the larger size the first time but some bars were too skinny and I couldn't make it all the way to the edge of the pan with the crumb mixture. They are uniform in the smaller size. I saw a review before recommending keeping the apricot preserves from extending to the edge where they can stick and burn so I stay about half an inch from the edge. I substitute apple cider for the apple juice.
