Apricot Almond Dressing

Talk about versatile! This light and fluffy stuffing goes with almost any entree. The apricots and slivered almonds add a sweet nutty flavor-but if I'm serving it with turkey, I often substitute cranberries and chestnuts.

    I make a dressing, similar to this, with cranberries, apples, sausage, onions, celery and poultry seasoning, moistened with melted butter and chicken stock. I cook it in a crockpot...and the flavor is really good, BUT the texture never turns out light and fluffy. There is always a heaviness to the dressing. I don't know it it's because I am adding too much liquid, or if I should avoid turning it as it cooks, or what. I've tried adding beaten eggs to the dressing, but that hasn't helped to lighten the density. Any ideas?
