Instructions
 

  • Wash the apricots and cut lengthwise along the natural seam. Do not cut the full length, only as much as required to remove the pit.
  • Replace the pit with one amaretti cookie and put the apricot into the aluminum baking container.
  • Add enough apricots (one layer) so that they are able to "stand-up" in the container without falling over.
