Pies & Pastries
pastry for 9" two-crust pie,
mincemeat (about 3 cups),
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pastry. Mix apricots and sugar in 1-1/2
qt saucepan. Add just enough water to cover apricots. Heat to boiling over
medium heat; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 15-20 minutes or until apricots
are tender; drain. Place apricots in pastry-lined plate. Spread with
mincemeat. Cover with top crust that has slits cut in it; seal and flute.
Cover edge with 2-3" strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning;
remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking. Bake 35-40 minutes or until
crust is brown. Serve warm.
