TOTAL TIME: 10 MIN SERVINGS: 4
8 ripe apricots, halved and pitted
1/2 cup fragrant honey, such as lavender
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat the broiler. Arrange the apricot halves, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of honey into each apricot half. Broil the apricots 4 inches from the heat for 3 to 4 minutes, rotating the sheet once, until bubbling and caramelized. Transfer 4 apricot halves to each plate and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
If you only have a broiler drawer that cooks food very close the flame, roast the honey-filled apricots for 3 minutes in a 450? oven and caramelize them under the broiler for the last minute or so.
