Fresh Apricot Pie

I found this recipe at a yard sale. This lady had two of those old library catalog card trays full of 3x5 cards with handwritten recipes. Both trays were packed with cards, and she only wanted $1 per tray. I have no idea how many recipes are in them, i've had them for 2 years now and have only gone through a handfull of them.

4 cups sliced fresh apricots
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup all purpose flour
pinch ground nutmeg
1 tbsp lemon juice
pastry for double crust (9")
additional sugar

In a bowl toss apricots, sugar, flour and nutmeg. Sprinkle with lemon juice, mix well. Line a 9" pie plate with bottom crust, add filling. Roll out remaining pastry to make a lattice crust. Place over filling, seal and flute edges. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges of pastry loosely with foil. Bake at 375' for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 6-8 servings.
