The last time I made these I grilled the apricots. The grilling made them too soft in my opinion. Yes these are some kind of fancy red and yellow apricot. Honestly they tasted like a plum. I would just use firm plums. Cut them in half and remove pit and then stuff with mashed goat cheese and honey. I sprinkled chopped almonds and honey with a sprinkling of sea salt. They were yummy and easy and no oven. Hooray!!
The terrible thing is I could just eat this raw. Its a little salty with a little sweet. I use it for a ton of things. Sometimes I just cut it out with cookie cutter shapes and sprinkle sugar on it and call them sugar tarts. you could even stuff it with savory stuff like meats and veggies and it would be good. Here is the recipe online. My mother uses vegetable shortening for her crusts which are delicious too. She also recommend keeping all the ingredients cold before using. She puts the flour sugar salt everything in the fridge before she uses it. I tried this and honestly I didn't notice a difference but I do cut up the butter and refrigerate it for a bit before I use it.
