Apricot White Chocolate Pudding Pie by Larry Andersen

Apricot And White Chocolate

Pudding Pie

For as far back as I can remember, apricots have always been my favorite fruit; dried, canned or fresh from the tree. I later years, when I came to know the Alaska Wild Berry candy kitchen, I found luscious dried apricot halves dipped in white chocolate. White chocolate goes so well with fruit and I decided white chocolate went especially well with apricots. That was the inspiration for this pie. It is an easy, quick, no-bake pie that will please just about every palate.

Preparation: 20 minutes Life Experience Recipe
Makes 1 8-inch pie
  • 1 each 9-inch pre-made Graham cracker crust
  • 2 each 1-ounce Jell-O® Instant white chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 2 each 15 ¼-ounce cans apricot halves
  • 2 ¾ cups milk
  • Whipped cream for serving
  1. This recipe makes a moist filling and a pie that will be kept in the refrigerator. We need to crisp up the pie crust a bit. Bake the prepared pie crust in a preheated 375°oven for 5 to 8 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling.
  2. Open cans and drain apricot halves in a colander. Set 8 of the nicest looking halves aside. Dice the remaining apricot halves.

  3. Place the Jell-O® mix in a bowl and add the milk. Beat with a whisk for two minutes. Fold in the diced apricots. Pour the mixture into the prepared Graham cracker crust. Refrigerate at least two hours to set.
  4. Evenly space the reserved apricot halves next to the rim, round side up, on top of the pudding mixture. Cutting between the apricots will make the traditional eight pie slices. Store in a pie carrier or lightly cover with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

  5. If serving the whole pie at the table, precut the pie with a sharp knife making sure you cut through the crust. Garnish with whipped cream leaving the apricot halves exposed. If serving a piece at a time, I think it is better to garnish the individual slice after it has been removed from the pie tin and put on a plate.

    If the white chocolate pudding and pie filling is not to your liking, try the Jell-O® cheesecake pudding and pie filling for a delicious alternative using the above instructions.
