A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this recipe. Apricot. Pie.

I’ve made all sorts of pies in my time. Apple, peach, pumpkin, cherry, but never apricot. Which is odd because I LOVE apricots.

A few days later, I was in Whole Foods and saw a bag of apricots and bought them. Not with the intention of making a pie, because, well, do I really need to eat an entire pie by myself?
Probably not. Although…

No. I wasn’t going to make the pie, but I wanted to do something with them besides using them in smoothies, which is usually what I do when I buy fruit I don’t have a plan for.

A few days after that, I decided to roast them, because why not? It probably wouldn’t be as good as the pie (how could it?) but it would be a healthier way to enjoy my apricots.

I couldn’t just plop them in and roast them, that would be boring, so instead, I drizzled some roasted hazelnut oil and a bit of honey over them, and now you have these lovely honey hazelnut roasted apricots. The result is sweet and fragrant, almost like the dried apricots I could eat all day long.

I’ve eaten these over yogurt, oatmeal, and spread on toast. Not to mention the few that I ate by themselves.

Fragrant and sweet, these juicy apricots are roasted with honey and hazelnut oil.
Ingredients
  • Fresh apricots
  • Roasted hazelnut oil
  • Good quality honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut your apricots in half and remove the pits. Lay them face up on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle them with oil and honey, although not too much honey because you don’t want to overpower their natural sweetness.
  3. Put in the oven, and let roast for 20 minutes or so. They’re done when they are kind of caramelized on top, soft, and very fragrant.
