Coconut Topped Apricot Pie

Coconut Topped Apricot PieWe got apricots in our box two weeks in a row. A LOT of apricots. Since we are not big apricot eaters, I decided to make a pie to serve for dessert. I found this recipe for Apricot Pie with Coconut Crumble from Martha Stewart, but wanted to use an oatmeal crumble. I also decreased the amount of sugar. Our company gave this a thumbs up; and I hope you will, too.
