Ruth Reichl, the celebrated food writer and editor in chief of Gourmet magazine, is a regular Greenmarket shopper. She says this recipe works very well with mushy apricots, too ripe for easy eating, as well as with underripe apricots, which will require more sugar. (You can also use peaches: quarter them after pitting.) Serve some whipped cream or ice cream on top.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the brown sugar. When melted, remove from the heat. Stir in the flour and nutmeg.

Pile the apricots into the prepared piecrust. Spread the butter mixture on top, patting it all the way to the edges.

Bake the pie in the bottom third of the oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F. and bake 45 to 50 minutes longer, until the topping is golden brown and the apricots are very tender. Cover loosely with foil if the top is getting too brown. Let cool on a rack.
