Honey Is Magic
In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.
Place nuts and chocolate chips into food processor and coarsely chop. Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture is blended. Lightly spray a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Using plastic wrap, press 2/3 of dough in the bottom and 1 1/2-inches up the side of the pan.Filling:
Place apricots, honey, water, lemon juice and flour in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Spread filling into the unbaked crust. Using remaining dough, drop by spoonfuls on top of filling, being sure to cover completely. Bake in the middle of the oven for 40-45 minutes, or until golden. When done, remove from oven and cool in pan on cake rack. To serve, garnish with a dollop of whipped cream.
