Ingredients

1 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (1/2 lb.) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups apricot preserves
3/4 cup sliced almonds

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter and lightly flour a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

Pulse oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a food processor to combine. Add butter and vanilla extract, pulsing until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk; pulse until mixture clumps and looks slightly damp. (Add another tablespoon of milk if mixture is too dry.)

Set aside 1 cup dough; press remaining dough into an even layer in pan. Bake until golden, 20 minutes.

Spread preserves evenly over hot dough; top with remaining dough and almonds. Bake until golden and bubbly, 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and cut into bars.
