Apricot-Pineapple Pie
  Re: (...)
A neighbor who took me under her wing when I was about 20 showed me how to cook a lot of her wonderful dishes. This is one of them.


2 cups dried apricots
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
20 ounces can crushed pineapple, DON'T DRAIN
Pastry for 2 crust 9" pie
1 Tablespoon butter

With a wet knife, cut apricots in half. In a large saucepan cover apricots with water.
Bring to a boil; simmer gently 15-20 minutes until tender.

In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and flour; add drained apricots and UNDRAINED pineapple.
Toss to mix thoroughly.
Turn fruit into pastry-lined pie plate; dot with butter.
Cover with 1/2" pastry strips twisted to make a lattice top.

Cover edge of crust with foil and bake in 375 F. oven for 25 minutes.
Remove foil and continue baking for 20-25 minutes.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

This looks like one of those things I'll have to try at least once. Mom LOVES apricots! Copied and saved! Thanks again Jean!
Keep your mind wide open.

Sounds like my kind of pie. Thanks, Jean!
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

My Mom, too, I'll have to try this (or at least give her the recipe). I sometimes forget she loves to cook, too!

Thanks, Jean.

Oh I so love apricots! I'll save this for after I'm at "fighting weight" for a special treat. Yum.
You only live once . . . but if you do it right once should be enough!
