This is such a simple recipe and is great for so many things, other than dessert. I use it on my Apricot Glazed Grilled Cornish Hens, after adding a savory herbed butter sauce. It’s the in thing right now to top a Japanese Cotton Cheesecake.
You’ll only need two ingredients and you can change it up, however you want. Grand Marnier, Triple-Sec, any orange liqueur is fine. If you don’t want to use a liqueur, plain water is fine. If you want another flavor of glaze, choose whatever flavor preserves you like and match to a flavored liqueur.
Using a small saucepan, simmer over medium low heat until mostly liquid.
Whisk it for about four minutes, breaking up the clumps.
It’s good on a bagel too. Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone.
Here is the handy printable recipe:
- ½ cup Apricot Preserves
- 1.5 Tablespoons orange flavored liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Triple Sec( or water)
- Add preserves and liqueur to a saucepan and cook over medium low heat, whisking continually, until mixture becomes liquid, about four minutes.
- Use as is, or blend with an immersion blender or strain through a sieve for a completely smooth glaze.
