Viennese Apricot Pie
Source of Recipe
Posted by: laston*************Seriously, I have seen people's eyes roll right back in their head at the first taste of this pie. It was originally in a '60s cookbook called "Farm Journal Complete Pie Cookbook" and was reprinted in our newspaper about 10 yrs ago.
List of Ingredients
1-1/2 C dried apricots
Cover with water,bring to a simmer and cook 10 min, adding 2 TBL sugar after 5 min. Drain,cool and cut into small pieces.
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 C sour cream (I have used lite, but not the fat free)
1-1/2 C sugar
1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 drops almond extract
Beat well and stir in apricots
Pour into an unbaked 10" pie shell
Bake at 400º for 25 minutes
Meanwhile, mix together
1/3 C flour
1/2 C light brown sugar
Cut in 1/4 C (half a stick) butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs
After pie has baked for 25 minutes, remove it from the oven and top with the crumb mixture. Continue baking for 20-25 more minutes until filling is set.
Cool to room temperature or chill before serving (with whipped cream of course!)
