This was certainly different from what I usually make, & its simplicity & lightness after a big meal was great! A very nice addition to my expanding file of dessert recipes! Thanks for posting!
I searched high and low for apricots packed in juice and was never able to find them. Instead, prepared this dessert with sliced peaches. It was light, delicous and quite comforting. My one comment was that the custard surrounding the fruit was a little watery. When draining the fruit I would make it air a bit so as to reatin the creaminess of the custard.
I made this with fresh apricots, which I prefer to canned, even though it's a bit more trouble. I also used Splenda. I expected to like it but was pleasantly surprised at how well the almond extract set off the taste of the apricots. A really great, easy dessert and easy on the waistline to boot.
