DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Slice the dried apricots in half and rinse them with water.
  • Place them in a sauce pan with the water, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Combine the cornstarch with the orange liqueur and about 1 tablespoon of the apricots' cooking liquid.
  • Mix until smooth then stir into the cooked apricots.
  • Add the white sugar and combine.
  • Pour mixture into the unbaked pie shell and seal with the top crust.
  • Brush milk over top crust for color, if desired.
  • Bake at 400°F for about 1 hour.
  • **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.
