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.
