Macerated Apricots with Amaretto and Toasted Almonds
Dried apricots soaked in Amaretto liqueur are absolutely delicious. Some good quality vanilla ice cream is perfect with them.
|200g||dried whole apricots (without stones)|
|1 tbsp||icing sugar|
|1-2 tubs||good-quality vanilla ice cream, to serve|
|50g||toasted flaked almonds, to serve|
1. Put the dried apricots in a bowl and pour over boiling water to cover. Leave to soak for 5 minutes (or longer if the apricots are very dry), then drain off the water.
2. Break the apricots into halves and place, hollow side up, in a shallow dish. Sprinkle over the icing sugar and then the Amaretto. Leave to macerate for 5 minutes.
3. Spoon the apricots over scoops of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle over the apricot juices and scatter the toasted almonds on top. Serve immediately.
