For 1 pie:

  • 1 ¼ cups (150 g) flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 1/3 oz (1 dl water)
  • 15 apricots
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 1/3 oz (100 g) slivered almonds
  • 2 cubeb peppercorns


Preparation of pie dough

  • Pour flour into terrine, made a well and add salt, olive oil and water
  • Mix ingredients with fingers to combine thoroughly
  • Make a ball and refrigerate 1 hour.

Preparation of apricot pie

  • Preheat oven to 325 °F (160 °C).
  • Wash apricots, cut in half, and remove pits
  • Spread dough in oiled earthenware mold
  • Arrange some almonds and apricot halves in the shape of a rosette; sprinkle with slivered almonds and superfine sugar.
  • Put in oven and cook 25 min.
  • Once removed from the oven, sprinkle with crushed tailed pepper (Cubeb pepper)


I also like sprinkling crushed pistachios on the pie and a few sprigs of fresh mint. The recipe can also be made with puff pastry

Suggested drink or wines

The ideal accompaniment to this pie is a "Baumes de Venise" Muscat.
