Recipe: Grilled Apricots with Sweet Mascarpone

This dessert is light and very easy to make.  It’s perfect for serving to a large group or for a quick snack.  Macerating fruit in a bit of sugar draws out its own juice so it can marinate before cooking.  The brown sugar adds an extra layer of flavor to the apricots, making them even more flavorful.

Grilled Apricots with Sweet Mascarpone

Serves 6

  • 6 ripe apricots, pitted and halved
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 ounces mascarpone cheese (or use low fat greek yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon Chambord or other berry liqueur
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh mint, sliced
  • ½ cup slivered almonds

Toss the apricots and figs with brown sugar and let sit for 10-15 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Spread the almonds out on a baking sheet and toast for about 10 minutes or until golden.

Preheat the grill to medium-high.  Place the figs and apricots over indirect heat, cut side down.  You will only need to let them cook for a minute or two before they’re ready to be flipped.  Let them sit long enough to develop grill marks and until they’re heated through.  Remove from heat.

In a separate bowl, whip the mascarpone with the Chambord.  Serve the apricot with a dollop of mascarpone, and sprinkled with mint and almonds.
