Mini Trifles with Grilled Apricots and Orange Blossom Honey

If you’ve ever put picnic desserts into the too hard basket (pun intended), we’re about to change your mind. Wedges of charred apricots, glazed with Bee Fruity Orange Blossom Honey, whipped mascarpone, with some crunch and texture provided by pistachios and savoiardi biscuits - heaven! The game changer here is that we are layering them into individual jars. Genius! Prepare ahead of time, screw the lid on and pop it in the esky and bask in the oohs and aahs upon the big reveal.



Prep time:20 minutes
Total time:20 minutes


  • 8 Apricots (halved and destoned)
  • 1-2 tsp Bee Fruity Orange Blossom Honey (for glazing)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Bee Fruity Orange Blossom Honey
  • 400 g mascarpone cheese (stand out of fridge to soften)
  • 200 ml thickened cream (lightly whipped)
  • 6 savoiardi biscuits
  • 100 g pistachios (roughly chopped)


  • Halve the apricots and carefully remove the stone. Heat BBQ or grill pan to med-high heat. Brush the flat side of apricots with honey and place on grill for 3-4 minutes, or until char marks appear.
  • Remove from heat and glaze with a little more honey immediately, the heat from the apricots will help. Allow to cool, and halve again.
  • Whisk the cream with honey and vanilla until soft peaks form, fold with the softened mascarpone.
  • Crumble one savoiardi biscuit and a small handful of pistachios in the bottom of the jar. Pipe or spoon the mascarpone and cream filling into the jar, tapping the jar as you go to remove air bubbles. Fill halfway.
  • Add the four quartered apricots with the grill marks facing out of the jar, pushing along the glass into the cream.
  • Repeat the biscuit layer, followed by more cream.
  • One or two more taps or the jar, then sprinkle generously with the chopped pistachios.
  • Lid on and store in an esky or fridge until ready for eating!
