Hungarian Apricot Nut Lattice Cake

3/4 cup sugar
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 sticks margarine (I use butter)
3 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine sugar, flour, baking powder and margarine or butter and work together well before adding beaten egg yolks, vanilla and sour cream. Work into a soft dough. Cover and chill.

After chilled, divide dough into two parts. < Pat one half into lightly greased 9 x 13 inch pan or roll out to fit into pan.

2 cups chopped nuts
dash salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 well beaten egg whites
1 1/2 pounds apricot filling

Blend nuts, salt, sugar, vanilla and well beaten egg whites. Spread over layer of dough. Spread apricot filling over egg-white layer. (Can use prune filling instead of apricot.)

Roll out other half of dough and cut into strips and use to make a lattice top. Brush with a beaten egg and bake 40 minutes in 350 degree oven.
