Dried Apricot Pie
I had some dried apricots that I wanted to use, so I found this on the web.
It is beyond delicious, and very easy!
Slightly tangy and quite sweet! I think it would be fantastic a la mode with vanilla bean ice cream. :-)
pastry for 9 inch pie (double crust)
water (or enough to cover, see recipe)
sugar (or less, see recipe)
Prepare pastry for double crust 9 inch pie. Line pan with bottom crust.
Put dried apricots into microwave-safe bowl. Add just enough water to cover fruit (about 2 cups).
Microwave for 15 minutes or until fork tender. Add sugar, cinnamon and flour. Set aside.
Fill bottom of pastry lined pan with apricot filling. Dot with butter.
Cover with second half of pastry, crimp and flute as desired.
Brush top of pie crust with milk and sprinkle sugar on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Cover crust edges with foil for first 15 minutes if desired, to prevent excess browning
