Baked Apricots



16 apricots, halved and pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 ounces dry vermouth
3 ounces honey

Yield: 6 Servings


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lay the apricots skin-side up in overlapping rows in an ovenproof dish. Mix the vanilla with the vermouth, and pour over the apricots. Drizzle the honey over, and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until the apricots are tender. Allow to cool, then chill. Serve with crème fraîche or whipped cream (on top of yogurt is another option).
