apricot & pine nut rice pilaf

i helped make this for my gma's 90th birthday celebration dinner... and even though we made a huge batch and it maybe didn't turn out perfectly... i knew i wanted to try the recipe again. it's really good. mmmmm
ingredients (serves 4):
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 onion chopped fine
2 cups rice (i used jasmine)
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup apricots, dried and cut small

directions:
brown pine nuts in butter and remove from pan. saute onion in remaining butter and add rice when onions are soft. saute for 1 to 2 minutes. add broth and cook on low heat for 10 minutes (sometimes a little more), covered. add pine nuts and apricots and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring as necessary.
