One of the best parts of summer is the fresh fruit. Fruit is just too good right now. I’m a big fan of grapefruit and peaches… but recently I’ve been seriously loving apricots. Truth is, I never really tried apricots before. Dried apricots, yes. But those are more like candy than fresh fruit. When we were visiting our friends Howie and Jana
, their friend made these incredible appetizers with apricot. Well, I’ve been craving
it ever since. (One night Garrett asked what I wanted from Seamless and I told him I wanted “Liz’s crostini” and he responded, “I don’t think she’s on Seamless yet.” Ha!)
While I’ve been trying to cook more, I don’t even know if this counts as a recipe. It’s super easy and is more like stacking things together!
The simplest of ingredients: Baguette, Ricotta, Apricots, and honey.
Really, that’s it.
Slice the baguette into 3/4″ rounds. Toast the rounds*. Spread a little bit of ricotta on each slice. Top with a sliver of apricot (or two!)** and then drizzle honey.
* I don’t have a toaster oven, so I popped them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes at 350.
** I like cutting a few extra apricots up to snack on!
Yum! I’ve been making these as a little mid-afternoon snack and as a side for dinner. It tastes how I imagine summer would taste. Savory from the bread and cheese, sweet with the apricot, and sticky from the honey. Delicious.
