They would be just as good with dried peaches. Also if you still happen to have some left over in a day or two you can re-heat them in the microwave to bring them back to that ‘just out of the oven’ state.
1 cup chopped dried apricots
1 cup boiling water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sour cream
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Soak the dried apricots in boiling water for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter until fluffy.
Add sour cream and mix well.
Combine the dry ingredients and stir into the creamed mixture just until fully mixed.
Drain the apricots and pat dry with paper towels, stir into batter.
Fill muffin cases (I ran out so used a mixture of cases).
Bake at 200C/gas 6 for 20 minutes
