Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Weeks.
Today's Apricot Amaretto Sandwich was from Andy's* Orchard (Morgan Hill, CA).
The aroma of this layered confection included notes of chocolate biscuit, almond biscotti, cooked rice, and sweet almond cookies.
Flavors included layers of dark chocolate, marzipan, and juicy, tart-sweet apricot with honey floral notes. The use of (now relatively rare) Blenheim apricots up-leveled the flavor. It made for a great California dessert.
Ingredients: Dried Blenheim Apricot (prepared with sulfur dioxide), glace apricot, marzipan, and chocolate
Allergen-related information: (none listed on small label/tag)
