I fell in love with making pies sometime after we got married. That’s not to say I’m a pro, I just enjoy the few recipes I know. And one of the best is my Grandma Crosby’s Apricot Pie! (You can use the same recipe with rhubarb too!) I’m pretty sure it’s my Dad’s favorite dessert. Especially with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, it can’t be beat. The crust is crunchy on top, soft in between, and flaky all over. It’s got the perfect amount of sweetness, and is so simple that I’m pretty sure anyone can make it. Even me!
So I had high hopes of this post being picture perfect in every way. It’s a family favorite recipe, it’s apricot season, I’m generally pretty good at this recipe… however things don’t always turn out in a Pinterest fashion, do they?
