Directions:
Stir the apricots, water and sugar together in a large microwave safe bowl. Put the bowl in a microwave oven set to full power and cook, stirring a few times, for 10 minutes, or until the apricots are soft and puffed and have absorbed almost all of the liquid. Turn the mixture into the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade and process until smooth, scraping the bowl as needed. Transfer the puree to a bowl, add the lemon juice and almond extract, and stir to mix. Scrape the filling into a small container and cool to room temperature. Seal the container and chill. The filling will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
