So, I had a ton of apricots to use up from our CSA. And, I really had a hankering for some pie. Thankfully, this is a problem that is really easy and delicious to solve. I went through my cookbooks but didn’t see a single recipe for apricot pie. I guess it’s not the most popular type of pie. Thankfully, I found a recipe here and the reviews were pretty good so I decided to give it a try.
Many of the reviews stated that people had substituted cinnamon for the nutmeg. I decided to add a pinch of both.
I was a bit concerned with how soupy the filling looked but I made the decision to follow the recipe. If it tastes good, then next time I might add a little bit of cornstarch or something like that to thicken it up.
This pie was also the first time that I attempted to do a lattice design on the top of the pie. When I make pie, usually it either has no top or a crumble topping. The finished lattice isn’t actually too bad. It’s not as pretty as I would like. I guess that means that I need to practice. And that means, more pies being baked.
After it finished baking, I removed the foil from the outside of the pie and let it bake for a few minutes more so that it can get a little bit more golden on the top.
It still looked a bit soupy on top. My hope was that it would thicken up a bit as it cooled. If it didn’t…oh well. It still smelled delicious.
After it had cooled, it did thicken up a bit. It still wasn’t as thick as I would have liked but it was a lot better. The best part, though, was the taste. It’s not too sweet and is a bit tart.
