I made this just now with fresh apricots. I added a teaspoon of lemon juice to the base and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the topping better to enhance the flavours as they seemed just a little bland to me. It was just what was needed. Thanks for the recipe. I appreciate the lower amount of sugar, as my husband is a diabetic and it's hard to find recipes with reduced amounts of sugar.

This was a very nice cobbler. I was not sure of the sugar measurements as there was 2 listed, so I used just under 1/4 cup. I should have used more, because the apricots were a little tart. But even with the tartness, we really enjoyed the recipe. Next time I will use a little more sugar or I think even drained tinned apricots would work really well also.
