    Units: US | Metric

    • 18 ounces dried apricots
    • 1 3/4 cups water
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur
    • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
    • 1 pastry for a double-crust 9-inch pie


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Slice the dried apricots in half and rinse them with water.
    3. 3
      Place them in a sauce pan with the water, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Combine the cornstarch with the orange liqueur and about 1 tablespoon of the apricots' cooking liquid.
    5. 5
      Mix until smooth then stir into the cooked apricots.
    6. 6
      Add the white sugar and combine.
    7. 7
      Pour mixture into the unbaked pie shell and seal with the top crust.
    8. 8
      Brush milk over top crust for color, if desired.
    9. 9
      Bake at 400°F for about 1 hour.
    10. 10
      **PLEASE NOTE: If your dried apricots are sweet, you may want to cut the amount of sugar from the 1 3/4 cups called for in the recipe to about 2/3 to 3/4 cup of sugar (or to your taste) to prevent the pie from being overly sweet. The dried apricots I use are quite tart/sour, so the 1 3/4 cups of sugar does not produce an overly sweet pie.

      This was a pretty good pie. I didn't have orange liqueur so I tried substituting orange extract. Wasn't a very good idea, but I think I will try to make this pie again, with the liqueur and see how it turns out. The pie filling was a little bit more liquid than I like, but it might have been because of the substitution I made. Definitely try this recipe if you like apricots, it is good stuff.

      I used the 18 ounces of dried apricots (by weight) and added 2 cups water and let them soak overnight in the fridge. In the morning I mixed up 3 tablespoons cornstarch with 1 cup sugar (didn't want them to sweet)and a tablespoon of Cointreau. Mixed in with the apricots and juice and microwaved at 3 minute intervals until it was thick and cooked. Let it cool and then made the pie. We found it too sweet and would not use even 1 cup of sugar next time. I think the dried apricots I have are sweet to begin with so maybe other apricots would need that much sugar.
