DELICIOUS APRICOTS STUFFED WITH CREAM/KAYMAKLI KAYISI TATLISI

This recipe is simplicity itself: the only thing to remember is to soak the apricots overnight and then the next day, to reserve 1 cup of that same liquid for the boiling with lemon and sugar.

Apricots stuffed with Cream/Kaymaklı Kayısı Tatlısı

Serves 4-6

INGREDIENTS

  • 250g/8oz Turkish dried apricots/kuru kayısı
  • 1 cup water
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • kaymak or clotted cream to serve (approx ½ roll of kaymak)
  • flaked almonds or crushed pistachio nuts for garnish

PREPARATION

  1. Soak the apricots overnight in cold water.
  2. Drain and reserve 1 cup of the water. Put the water in a pan with the apricots,
  3. lemon juice and sugar. Boil gently for 10 minutes or until the syrup thickens,
  4. taking care not to allow the apricots to become mushy.
  5. Allow to cool. Then split open the apricots and
  6. stuff with a spoonful of the cream. Arrange on a serving dish facing up, spoon over
  7. the syrup and sprinkle with either the pistachios or flaked almonds.
  8. I decided that I wanted to toast the almonds so quickly did exactly that in a small frying pan over medium heat.

An easy dessert that tastes just as good as it looks!

Easy to eat too: just pop one straight in your mouth and ENJOY!
