Apricot Pie

You bought too many apricots for jam making, didn't you? I know, I always over-purchase as well. If you can gather up three cups of sliced apricots, you can make this pie. This is a very plain sort of pie that really relies on the quality of the fruit.

from better Homes and Gardens Pies and Cakes, 1966

You Will Need:

Pastry for a 2 crust pie
3 cups apricots, sliced
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons plain flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter

preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line pie plate with bottom pastry, and fill with apricots. Combine sugar, flour, and nutmeg. Sprinkle over fruit. Drizzle top with lemon juice, then dot with butter. Cover with top crust, cut vents and bake 25-30 minutes or until done. I brushed mine with heavy cream and sprinkled it with coarse sugar before baking.
