I hope apricot season isn’t over where you live because you should make this pie. Not too sweet of a pie, the apricots can almost taste like apples. Maybe that sounds weird but I like apple pie, too, so it didn’t bother me.
1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked
4 cups fresh apricot halves
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-2 T lemon juice (from half a lemon)
1/3 cup pie crumbs
Mix together the sugar and flour. Sprinkle half of it on the bottom of the pie crust. Arrange the apricots cut side down on top of the sugar mixture. Sprinkle the lemon juice and then the remaining sugar on top of the apricots and the pie crumbs on top of all that.
Bake the pie at 425 for 15 minutes and then at 350 for another 25 to 30 minutes or until good and bubbly. Remove from oven and cool completely before serving.
Yield: 1 9-inch pie
