Sunday's Recipe: Roasted apricots with honey mascarpone and fresh mint

Summer to me means food-wise that all my favorite fruits are available. I love peaches and apricots; sweet as in yogurt topped with granola and maple syrup or hearty on a pizza. Last year I saw this post on Joy the baker and was so impressed with how simple yet so delicious summer dessert could be, I decided this recipe is going to be made multiple times this summer.

 Dip apricot halves in sugar and place in a oven safe dish.

Bake the apricots in the oven for about 5 minutes until the sugar melts, boils and begins to brown. I used the grill mode of my oven and placed the apricots in the upper half.

In a small bowl, mix honey into mascarpone. Top slightly cooled apricots with a dollop of mascarpone mixture, and a sprinkling of fresh mint and enjoy!

As you can see I let the apricots this time a bit longer in the oven so the fruit didn't stay firm but I actually loved these soft, messy piles of goodness. You can do either way, they always taste great. 

Have a great Sunday, I'm off enjoying the afternoon at the pool and trying to get a bit of a tan.

Hey Aylin, ja mach das, geht ganz schnell und sind unglaublich lecker! Meine Schwester hat eine Schwäche für antikes Geschirr. Das meiste davon ist entweder aus dem Bekanntenkreis oder dem Brockenhaus aber mittlerweile gibt es ja au viele neue vintage-looking Alternativen, wenn man nicht so auf "second hand" steht... :)
