Delicious and decadent, in a healthy sort of way! This lovely dessert looks beautiful in a crystal or glass serving dish, when the different layers look very striking. The quantities here serve four (in a dish measuring about 4.75" or 12 cm in diameter, filled to a depth of about 1.75" or 4.5cm), but the recipe multiplies very well. Indeed, it started life as a recipe for 8-10, but I scaled it down! The recipe is very quick and easy to prepare (the cooking time shown includes 3 hours chilling) and the quantities are quite flexible, according to taste, availability and size of serving dish.I used "no soak" dried apricots; if your apricots are very dry (the sortwhich you can't eat straight from the packet), add a little more water in Step 2 and simmer for longer (until the fruit is tender) before continuingwith the recipe. Created for Ready Set Cook #9 (2007), to use the followingfive ingredients: dried apricots, fresh oranges, Grand Marnier, brown sugarand cinnamon.
