Mom's Gourmet Apricot Pie

Apple, cherry and blueberry usually get all the glory when it comes to fruit pies. But Mom's Gourmet Apricot Pie is in a category all by itself! It uses a traditional pie shell, but has a creamy filling and brown sugar streusel instead of a top crust. You'll need to do a little advance planning to stew the apricots before you're ready to make the pie. Soak them in a saucepan full of water for 2-3 hours. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until the fruit is nice and tender. When cool enough to handle, cut into small pieces. This may seem cumbersome — but trust us — it's worth it! To get Mom's Gourmet Apricot Pie started, beat Smith's Sour Cream with extract, eggs, sugar and salt. Fold in the stewed apricots, then pour into your unbaked pie shell (either homemade or store bought). While that's baking, mix together the topping ingredients, then sprinkle over the top and finish baking according to the recipe instructions. Let it chill before serving, and spoon on a dollop of whipped topping. After everyone tastes Mom's Gourmet Apricot pie, those other fruit pies might be taking a back seat!
