1 tablespoon sugar
4 apricots, halved and pitted
8 teaspoons fresh ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
Preheat broiler. Place sugar in a small saucer. Dip cut side of apricots in sugar to coat and transfer to a small broiler-proof baking dish.
Broil, rotating once, until apricots are caramelized and juicy, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove apricots from oven. Let cool slightly and top with ricotta and pistachios. Serve immediately.
NOTE: If you like, top the apricots with fresh herbs, such as mint or basil, in addition to the pistachios.
