“Found at, “This apricot dessert has a few secrets. It’s sublime, healthy & relatively low-fat. Its secret ingredient is Greek yogurt (richly thick, creamy & tart). Its secret technique is to use ingredients which are simple, fresh & in season – The golden rule for cooking. A little sugar is sprinkled over apricot halves, which are then broiled until the sugar dissolves & begins to caramelize. The fruit softens & breaks down (virtually melting into itself), but is held together by its soft skin w/a puddle of caramelized sugar pooled in the center. Whisked Greek yogurt (lightly sweetened & brightened w/lemon) is spooned over-the-top or to-the-side of the fruit & serves as a cool complement to the apricot’s warmth. It’s a luscious & fresh end to any meal.” Enjoy!”
3 Halves per serving
