Amaretto Apricots
1 large can apricot halves, drained and syrup reserved
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur
Slivered toasted almonds
Sweetened whipped cream
Place reserved apricot syrup in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half and thickened, about 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

Whisk amaretto into the reduced apricot syrup. Place apricots into a glass container and cover with amaretto syrup. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
To serve, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with slivered almonds. Yield: 4 to 6 servings
