Dried apricots are stuffed with creamy mascarpone and drizzled with orange blossom syrup to make this sweet Turkish-inspired dessert.
1. Soak the apricots in cold water overnight.
2. Remove the apricots from the soaking liquid (do not throw the liquid away) and add them to a medium pot. Pour in one cup of the soaking liquid. (If there is not enough, add more water to make a cup.) Add the sugar, lemon juice and orange blossom water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook the apricots for 10 minutes until soft but not mushy.
3. Remove the apricots from the pot with a slotted spoon and bring the remaining liquid to a boil until reduced to a syrup.
4. Cut the apricots gently in half (most of them will split on their own) and fill them with mascarpone. Drizzle them with the syrup and sprinkle with chopped pistachio.
