and puree until smooth. For the topping: Combine 1/2 cup of the
powdered sugar, the almond powder, butter, egg yolks, and the whole
egg in a mixinf bowl and beat with a whisk until smooth. Divide the
batter among the 6 gratin dishes and spread evenly over the apricots.

sugar. Place the gratins in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Bring
the puree witht he Kirsch up to a simmer. Remove gratins from the oven
and place one on each plate. Garnish with puree, powdered sugar and
