Step 1: Making the clafoutis batter

Cream the butter. Fold in the sugar and the almond powder. Continue to mix until the mixture lightens in color; add eggs one at a time, followed by the pastry cream powder. Add pastry cream. Finish by adding diced fresh apricot.

Butter pastry rings 2 1/2 inches (6.5 cm) in diameter, set on a baking sheet, and fill with the mixture 1/2 inch (1.5 cm) high. Bake for about 15 minutes at 338°F (170°C) in a convection oven.

Remove from the pan, let cool, set aside.

Step 2: Preparing the compote and granita

Dice the apricots. Cook apricots with sugar, water, and the vanilla bean split and scraped, until the fruit pieces are tender. Chill.

For the granita, mix water and amaretto. Freeze.
