Place the apricots in the Cuisinart® Food Processor fitted with the metal blade. Process until smooth and puréed, about 20 seconds. Stir in lemon juice; reserve. Place the half-and-half and mascarpone in the Cuisinart® Fondue Pot. Heat using Setting 5 - 6, until bubbling. Reduce the heat to Setting 3-½ and stir until the mascarpone is completely incorporated in the cream. Gradually add the white chocolate, ½ cup at a time, whisking it in and stirring until it is completely melted before each addition. Stir in the liqueurs. Reduce the heat to Setting 3 to serve the fondue. Just before serving, measure out ½ cup of the apricot purée. Drizzle the apricot purée into the fondue and swirl with a knife for a marbleized effect.
