A Pie NOT to Repeat!

I felt like baking a pie the other day.

I spied a tub of dried apricots in the pantry that needed to be used. I searched my cookbooks and found an apricot pie recipe using dried apricots. The apricots required a soaking and simmering before being dumped into the crust. I envisioned pulling a golden brown pie from the oven, filled with tasty, tender apricots.
It was golden brown. It did look delicious. But on eating, the apricots were so chewy that it was not a pleasure to eat. But at least the crust was good!
