Description

Each of these little crumb-coated balls (or dumplings) bears a surprise inside: a whole peeled apricot that’s been stuffed with a sugar cube, covered in a cream-cheese dough, and boiled until cooked inside and out before rolling in the coating. As for the coating, breadcrumbs are pan-fried with a little butter, sugar, ground pistachios, and a pinch of cinnamon. The bite-sized nibbles are just right for a summer cocktail party.

Ingredients

  • 70 grams butter (soft)
  • 1 eggs
  • 50 grams semolina (fine)
  • 130 grams wheat flour
  • 250 grams cream cheese (25% fat)
  • 8 apricots
  • 20 grams caster sugar
  • 50 grams bread crumbs (fine)
  • 30 grams pistachios (ground)
  • cinnamon

Directions

  1. 1Work 50 grams of soft butter to a cream in a bowl, add egg, and then semolina and flour. Mix.
  2. 2Add cream cheese, mix for a thick dough.
  3. 3Store in a cool place for 1 hour.
  4. 4Remove the seeds from apricots trying if possible not to cut them in 2, replace the apricot seeds with a sugar square, and close apricot.
  5. 5Divide the dough into 8 identical balls, slightly flour your fingers since the dough is a bit sticky.
  6. 6Flatten the balls on a floured surface. Wrap each apricot completely in dough, press firmly so that it sticks on the fruit.
  7. 7Heat 20 grams of butter in a skillet, add bread crumbs, sugar, pistachio powder, and a pinch of cinnamon, let it color a bit.
  8. 8Heat a large pot of water.
  9. 9When boiling, gently dip dumplings in the water for 12 to 15 minutes until they rise to the surface.
  10. 10Remove from water, immediately roll in breadcrumb mixture.
  11. 11Serve warm.
