Dutch Apricot Pie

Every year, I do my best to come up with something special to make my sister for her birthday. Last year I made teacup cupcakes, and the year before that I whipped up some Nutella-filled lamingtons. This year though, it’s all about the pie. Though I’ve only seen a few episodes of the show, my sister is a huge fan of Supernatural, and I’ve been filled in on numerous occasions that one of the main characters really loves him some pie. So, with a bag of frozen apricots I picked last summer at a friend’s orchard, I got to work making this simple pie with my favorite all-butter pie crust and a delicious crumble topping. Normally, I can’t wait to dig into a pie fresh from the oven – but this time I waited a few hours for the pie to set up, and it ended up being one of the best fruit pies I’ve ever made. So, to my sister, I hope you have an awesome birthday – I didn’t forget the pie!

For the topping:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the pie crust to 1/8″ thick, and then carefully place it in a pie dish. Around the edges, fold under and press down any excess dough. Bake without any filling for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, toss all of the pie filling ingredients together. To make the topping, mix together all of the topping ingredients in a medium bowl.

Pour the pie filling into the warm crust. Drop the crumble topping over the top of the filling, and then cover the edges with a pie shield or aluminum foil. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Remove the pie crust shield or foil and bake 10 minutes longer. Let cool at least an hour before serving.

  2. That crumb topping just sends this pie over the top. It looks amazing!
