Mix together the apricots, sugar, vanilla extract, orange juice and amaretto in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and cook, stirring constantly, until the apricots are soft and have started to release their juice, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the apricots have broken down, about 1 1/2 hour. If mixture is too thick or begins to burn, stir in 1 tablespoon of water and mix well.
Stir cornflour into 4 tablespoons water and pour into the apricot mixture. Bring to the boil and simmer until the mixture forms a thick syrup, about 30 more minutes.
