6 apricots washed and halved, stone removed
5 ounces butter
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons sugar
Pinch of salt
¼ teaspoon almond extract
¾ cup almonds or combination of almonds and pistachios, chopped
½ cup cake or cookie crumbs
¼- ½ cup dessert wine, such as Sauterne or Muscat


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375º Cream the butter and the sugar together in a stand up mixer, add salt and almond extract and nuts and cookie or cake crumbs.
