Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter with Saffron Salt and cardamom in a small saucepot over medium-low heat. Pour into a medium bowl and stir in brown sugar. Stir in egg until thoroughly incorporated (if butter and sugar mixture is hot, let cool for about 5 min. before stirring in the egg so it doesn't curdle). Fold in flour, apricots, and pecans. The mixture will be very thick. Spoon the batter into an 8-inch square pan lined with parchment paper. Spread mixture evenly and sprinkle generously with Saffron Salt. Bake for 25 to 30 min., or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the blondies comes out clean. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting and serving.
