Fresh Apricot Pie Recipe

Fresh Apricot Pie             

2 lbs. fresh apricots, halved and pitted
2 Tbs. apricot brandy
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3 Tbs. quick cooking tapioca
1/4 tsp. salt
2 refrigerated pie crusts
1 Tbs. unsalted butter, cut up

Preheat oven to 450F. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl. Combine sugars, tapioca and salt in another bowl. Gently stir apricots into sugar mixture. Let stand 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Roll out one pastry on a lightly floured work surface to a 1/8 inch thickness. Arrange in a 9 inch pie pan, letting pastry overhang edge. Spoon filling into pie shell and dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to a 1/8 inch thickness. Arrange on top of filling. Cut 2 slits in top to allow steam to escape. Seal and flute by pressing together with index finger and thumb, pressing down on rim of pie pan. Place pie on a cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375F. Bake 40-45 minutes longer, until center is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Let cool completely on wire rack.
