This apricot preserve recipe from Britney (of Britney Breaks Bread) requires less than 10 ingredients and just a very few minutes to pop into the oven. (Leave chilling time in the back end, however!)
As Britney explains in her episode "You Never Know Until You Try", this recipe came to her in phases. First, she tried a fresh apricot for the first time, loved it, and wanted to incorporate it in a dessert. Next, she was inspired by a key lime pie and decided to replace the lime flavor with sweet apricot preserves. Finally, Britney hit her stroke of genius - a crushed caramel cookie crust, made with Pepperidge Farm Bordeaux cookies. The caramel flavor is the perfect complement to the fruity preserves.
One word - this is a very sweet dessert! Depending on how you make your key lime pie, it often has a lot of sharp, tangy zest to cut the sweet. Obviously, an apricot preserve recipe isn't going to have any sharp! So if you really don't like sweet desserts, this may not be for you. On the other hand... in the formative words of Britney's Nanny - "You never know until you try!" I think you'll love it!
