This is a make-ahead pie filling from freezer to oven. Great way to use fresh apricots or peaches, This way you will have a fresh fruit pie in the middle of winter.

The recipe comes from Sunset.com.
These are wonderful year round, but I them best in the colder months when the yearning for an ice cream sandwich hits.
