This was the first time I had made this recipe. I would change a few things next time. I didn’t have the exact size tray so just spread it onto a normal big size tray and I think I made mine a little to thin as they have broken a bit when cut. I also just sliced my dried apricots so as you can see in the photo they are hanging out the sides. Next time I will dice them smaller instead.
