Apricot and Yogurt Custard

This dish has a firm texture, not unlike cheesecake. The egg yolks help stabilize the yogurt.

4 ounces dried apricots, soaked overnight in cold water

2 cups plain Greek yogurt

2 egg yolks

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons chopped pistachios

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Drain softened apricots; cut them into small pieces. Place in a 4-cup baking dish. Beat yogurt and yolks together in a bowl; pour over apricots. Place baking dish in a baking pan. Pour enough water into the pan to come halfway up the outside of the baking dish. Bake until set, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool. To serve, mix brown sugar with pistachios, and sprinkle over top. Makes 4 servings.
