So I baked these....and they really didn't turn out....I found this (at the bottom of the post) picture which gives a great image of what they're supposed to look like and they tasted great! I will likely give them another go and I know if they turned out they would have been fantastic! (not sure why you didn't turn out but I think I just was doing too much at once) Going in the oven (above) they looked great...coming out...not great...
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup prepared apricot filling
1 (6-oz.) white baking bar, chopped
2 tablespoons shortening
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat sugar, brown sugar, margarine and 1/4 cup shortening until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in rolled oats. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Make a small indentation in each cookie; fill with 1/2 teaspoon apricot filling.
Bake at 350°F. for 9 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Meanwhile, in small saucepan over very low heat, melt glaze ingredients. Spoon or drizzle over warm cookies. Cool completely.
