Prep: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Cook time: 30-40 minutes

Serves 4

Adapted from "The Yogurt Cookbook" by Arto Der Haroutunian (Interlink Books, $35). This dish has a firm texture, not unlike cheesecake. The egg yolks help stabilize the yogurt. We used 2 percent Greek yogurt in testing.

INGREDIENTS

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

INSTRUCTIONS

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 cold water into the pan to come halfway up the outside of the baking dish.

Bake until set, 30-40 minutes. Allow to cool. To serve, mix brown sugar with pistachios. Sprinkle over top.
