6 apricots*, cut in half and pitted

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Cook’s Note

Cook's Note: Fruit should be ripe, yet still firm. Serving Suggestion: Serve the roasted fruit over vanilla bean ice cream, accompanied by a shortbread cookie. Alternatively, serve fruit with fresh whipped cream or creme fraiche and use it as a filling or topping for crepes.
