Method
  • 1. FOR THE FRUIT

    Cut the apricots in half and remove the seeds. Heat the butter in a pan and add in the apricots and the picked thyme. Zest and juice the lemon. Add the zest and the honey to the pan and use to baste the apricots. When the apricots start to turn brown add the lemon juice to the pan and remove from the heat.

  • 2. FOR THE BISCUIT(S)

    Preheat the oven to 180'C. Mix the ingredients thoroughly in the food processor until they form a ball. Roll into a sausage shape, wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge until firm. Slice into discs and cook at 180'c for 8 to 10 minutes.

  • 3. FOR THE CREAM

    De-seed the vanilla pod and mix thoroughly through the creme fraiche and the icing sugar.

  • 4. TO PLATE

    Swipe the vanilla cream up a long plate and place the apricot halves and biscuits intermittently up the plate.
