Apricots are small treasures of golden color that fit nicely in your palm. They are a great treat, sweet and full of flavor. Apricots have been used in many cultures as a staple in cooking, drinks and medicine for centuries.
Now imagine Apricots as an appetizer. This recipe combines the sweet full taste of Apricots with Mascarpone and Pistachio. Mascarpone is an Italian cheese made from cream. It is milky colored and spreads easily. Sometimes mascarpone is used instead of butter or cheese. Pistachios are just darn good; they are a nut, from the cashew family, that grows on trees. When they ripen the shells turn from green to a creamy color and split open with an audible pop. The meat of the pistachio is green and used as an ingredient in many wonderful foods.
Appetizers should be easy to make, tasty and light this recipe hits the mark. My neighbor, Roxanne Sienkiewicz, shared this Apricot with Mascarpone and Pistachio recipe with me. You will find this appetizer recipe to be a definite keeper.
