Ingredients

  • 6 cups sliced pitted apricots
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Biscuit Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
Glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Method

In large bowl, toss together apricots, sugar, flour, lemon rind and juice and cardamom to coat. Scrape into 8-cup (2 L) shallow casserole dish or 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish. Set aside.

Biscuit Topping: In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt ; with pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk all at once, stirring with fork to make soft slightly sticky dough; gather into ball.

On lightly floured surface, knead dough about 10 times or until smooth. Pat out into circle about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick. Using 3-inch (8 cm) round fluted cookie cutter, cut out rounds, rerolling and cutting scraps. Arrange over fruit.

Glaze: Brush rounds lightly with milk; sprinkle with sugar. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until centre biscuit is no longer doughy underneath, about 40 minutes. Serve warm.
