    This recipe comes from the 2005 cookbook, The Best Recipes in the World. "Roasting them (the apricots) in the oven...intensifies their sweetness and makes average apricots quite suculent."

      This is a fabulous trick! I had a few apricots leftover from making Syd's Iced Louisiana Apricot Tea . They worked fine for flavoring and garnishing the tea, however were pretty uninspiring fruits; rather firm and not terribly flavorful....so I thought I would give this a try. So very glad I did because the process turned those hard, bland apricots into an amazingly sweet and delicious treat! I didn't even bother with trying to follow the ingredient amounts closely. Used the 3 leftover apricots, probably 2 teaspoons of sugar and less than 1 tablespoon of butter. Served with a dollop of cream, this made for a fantastic light dessert. Was also quite elegant in presentation. Thank you for sharing.

      Neither Dh nor I were sure if we liked fresh apricots, but now we know---we love them..........at least when roasted. I used Splenda Blend on half and Splenda Brown Sugar blend on the other half--both were equally delightful! We had them on vanilla ice cream and what a treat it was! Thanx!

      Mmmm! Warm baked apricots over frozen vanilla yogurt is very good stuff. Made using Splenda for baking. Sydney thanks so much for such a quick, easy and yummy dessert.
