Apricots with St. André and Mint Recipe
One of my family’s favorite appetizers, this bite-sized snack is easy to make. In the summer, I’ll use fresh apricots. I also will use blue cheese, instead of a triple-cream like St. André, for a less decadent appetizer with a greater punch of flavor.
- 1 cup triple-cream cheese, such as St. André
- 30 dried apricot halves
- 30 whole or julienned fresh mint leaves
Scoop a teaspoon of cheese into each apricot and top with a mint leaf or a few shreds. You can make these up to 8 hours ahead and refrigerate; just add the mint leaf right before serving. Make sure the apricots are at room temperature before serving so that the cheese has maximum flavor.
