“Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Canada. From the "Best of International Cooking" cookbook. I haven't had the opportunity to try this pie yet. Note: If fresh or frozen apricots are not available, one (29 oz.) can apricot halves in heavy syrup, drained, can be used. If using canned apricots, omit granulated sugar.”
