A quick easy snack using fresh apricots.
- Stir cream cheese until smooth; pipe or spoon into apricot halves. Sprinkle tops with pistachios.
these were good... but i think they needed to be sweeter... I think next time I will add a touch of Cinnamon to the cream cheese and then whip it, and instead of pistachios ill use some candied walnuts or prailines... YUMMY!!!
Loved the idea, but needed a bit more sweetness for my flavor. I'll rate this a 5 because it was very easy and over all good flavor. But I did add a few changes.
I used mascarpone which I prefer over cream cheese, and added a few fine chopped dried cranberries. It gave it a bit of sweetness and was very enjoyable texture wise. The apricots I grilled. I brushed them with honey and lightly grilled them. So they were lightly warm, but nothing too much. Pistachios were a great touch.
Again, this was my take. I did try one (not grilled) and with only the mascarpone and pistachios and for me it need something which is how I came up with my version.
But a nice healthy recipe
A super easy and healthy snack or dessert. Used fresh apricots with light cream cheese- delicious. What's not to like here?.....it's fruity, sweet, creamy and nutty. I think also would be great with a thick yogurt in place of the cream cheese and chopped flaked almonds in place of the pistachios. Photo also being posted.
