Grilled Apricots with Fromage Blanc
- 8 oz. fromage blanc
- 1 tsp. minced lemon zest
- 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 to 2 Tbs. superfine sugar, preferably, or granulated sugar
- 10 ripe apricots, cut in half and pitted
Prepare a fire in an outdoor grill or preheat a gas grill. Mix together the fromage blanc, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and 1 Tbs. of the sugar in a small bowl. Taste and add more sugar if you like. If you have a pastry bag, spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.Place the apricots, skin side down, on the grill. Grill them until they just begin to soften and brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Arrange them, skin side down, on a serving tray. If you have a pastry bag, pipe a star of the fromage blanc mixture into the center of each apricot half; if not, spoon some of the mixture into the center. Serve immediately.
