Apricot Raisin Sour Cream Pie

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

I suspect this recipe [on a card] came from an old cookbook my mother had. I don't recall her making it, but it is in her handwriting from about 30 years ago. The combination of apricots & raisins sound great!

Dull day and empty pantry, so I came to RecipeZaar and typed in raisins and apricots. What a score! This tastes like a mince pie and had a nice chewy (really dry apricots) texture. I'll try it with fresher apricots-I did soak them a while first-next time. Well worth the 30 year find.
