You can have this all-year round if you freeze several portions of the apricots during the summer when they are plentiful! The crumb topping is what makes this pie SO special. Summer-time in a pie-plate--how neat is THAT!?

We loved this pie! Used Splenda and it worked well. The apricot flavor was intense and blended well with the streusel - and the toasted pecans were a great textural contrast.Will make this one again- thanks for sharing!!!

This was delicious! The fruit could have done with a bit more sugar but I suppose it depends on the sweetness of the apricots. The topping was nice and crunchy - I loved the fact it used nuts(I used walnuts). Thanks for posting this recipe!
