rich purée of dried apricots/peaches
Explanation:
I can see what my issues would be with this one. 1) You never really know if orejones are peaches or apricots, 2) do not really want to say greasy, fatty or oily. The above would be my solution. It is what we tend to say instead of fatty or greasy, I think. Just one idea for the pot. I love these questions.

By the way, of course there´s no way of solving the fruit question without asking, unless you go for the non-specific "dried fruits".

... Or "dried soft fruits", which is OK I think.
