Apricot & Almond Crunch

I can’t get enough of apricots! But, here’s the thing: I like them cooked unless they are at peak ripeness. Cooking (grilling, baking, frying) apricots brings out that deep, unique flavor. I’ve used a lighter topping that a traditional crisp, because I wanted this summer dessert to be lighter, but still have a crunch. It took me 10 minutes to put together – so a very easy dessert.
