I have never understood the lack of apricot dessert love here in Canada. When I went to Paris for the first time, many years ago, I was thrilled with how every bakery had two or three apricot pastries or desserts. All the pastries I ate (all in the name of research, of course!) used apricots from a can, which are readily available year-round.
If you’re from Manitoba, you might be familiar with this dessert, but it was a complete novelty for everyone in Saskatchewan whom I served it to.
I stumbled on this recipe while I was going through my Grandma Kay’s recipes and was thrilled to see it had apricots! This is one of my favorite new desserts. If you are so inclined, try peaches in this as well.
