I have about 3 cups of apricots and all the recipes i have for an apricot pie call for 5-6 cups. I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for an apricot + some other fruit. By the way these are fresh apricots.

    Possibly you've gone shopping for more apricots by now but may I suggest if you want a fruit that will complement apricots in a pie try apple?

    Or you could fill the gaps with an mixture of almond meal and raisins also if you have any dried fruit try soaking the dried fruit in tea or hot water with some spices and sugar for a few hours to soften the fruit drain offf the water or (the liquid can be re-used to mix the pie crust/pastry) and use the spiced fruit mixture to supplement the apricots?

    I also try to have at least one can of pie ready apple or apricot or another fruit filling in the cupboard.

    P.s. wandering off topic but if you or any other readers ever run out of pastry but do have ingredients for batter ... batter puddings are quick and easy .... just pour the batter mix over the fruit for a clafoutis/ batter pudding!

    I would just fine a peach pie recipe made w/ fresh peaches that sounds good, and sub fresh apricots for the peaches. A bit of cardamom (spice) is always nice w/ apricots, so maybe add 1/4 tsp of that to the filling.
