Can You Say Pie? Apricot Pie!

Did I say strawberries were my favorite?  I meant apricots are my favorite...at least for pie.  Yummo!!!
It's especially good when the apricots come from the tree in my backyard. We don't get apricots every year, because my tree is early blooming and there is always spring snow that knocks off the blossoms. This year is the first year in many, many years that we have had enough to make pies or anything else. I usually end up begging my friend Kristine for apricots off her tree.

There are a few things that I love to do with apricots.  I make Apricot Pineapple Jam (that's for my husband - it's his favorite).

And for me, my favorite is Apricot Syrup!!!

But the season in not complete unless there is an apricot pie.  Apricot pie has the perfect blend of sweet and tart.  We had so many apricots that Rielley made 5 apricot pies!  I don't know if I was more excited that Rielley made the pies, or that we ended up with 5 pies.  Rielley said she wanted to make the pies, and she did, all by herself.  I was really impressed.  The pies were beautiful!  And the crust was just perfect, nice and flaky.  Yay for Rielley!  Yum for Me!!
