Dessert doesn't need to be really sweet to seem indulgent. Broiling apricots with a touch of brown sugar intensifies the fruit's flavor without adding too many calories.

  • Place apricots, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Dividing evenly, top with brown sugar, butter, and cardamom. Broil until apricots just begin to char, 2 to 5 minutes. Top apricots with whipped cream, and serve immediately.

This was delicious! Broiling the apricots really concentrated and intensified the flavor. I made it on a busy weeknight, so I substituted light Cool Whip for the fancy whipped cream, but it was still amazing.
