Mascarpone Stuffed Apricots

Mascarpone Stuffed Apricots

Mascarpone stuffed apricots are a great addition to your charcuterie or dessert tray.

Apricots are very popular in the Mediterranean and used in savory and sweet dishes. Mascarpone is a creamy Italian cheese that you will find in desserts like tiramisu.

They are simple to make and require just a few things to assemble.   I like to drizzle honey over the apricots but you can also use a simple syrup as well.

12 dried apricots
1/2 cup mascarpone (125g)
3/4 cup pistachios (lightly or unsalted)
Honey or simple syrup (recipe below)

Simple Syrup:
3/4 cup granulated sugar (150g)
1 lemon, juice
2 tsp water

In a saucepan add the juice of 1 lemon, sugar and 2 tsp of water.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 min, stirring occasionally. When the syrup has thickened let it cool to warm to coat the apricots. 


Pulse (or chop) the pistachios to a coarse powder. Split the dried apricots in half without separating the halves. Fill the apricots with mascarpone and place them on a dish or platter.

Generously sprinkle the stuffed apricots with crushed pistachios. Drizzle syrup (or honey) over the apricots and serve at  room temperature!
