Source: Unknown
Serves: 12-20

1/2 pound softened sweet butter or unsalted margarine
2 egg yolks
pinch salt
1 cup sugar
2 cups sifted cake meal
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 16-ounce jar apricot preserves
1/4-1/2 cup lemon juice, depending on tartness of preserves
1/2 cup chopped nuts, raisins and/or chips, etc.

Combine all the pastry ingredients.

Spread 3/4 of dough on bottom of greased 9"x13" pan. Bake at 325°F for 20 minutes. Refrigerate remaining dough until needed.

Remove crust from oven and while hot, spread prepared mixed filling mixture over crust. Crumble remaining dough on top. Bake an additional 30-35 minutes.

Poster's Notes:
One year I got very ambitious and tried the recipe with all different flavors of jam. Don't bother. The best one is the apricot.

This is a great recipe for Passover. It freezes well, and it tastes delicious right out of the freezer. I usually have to make at least 3 batches, because it really goes fast.
