Baked Apricots

Getting ready to sprinkle the topping on the apricots
I saw this "my very best side-dish" recipe on Richella's blog recently and decided to give it a try last night.  I served this sweet accompaniment to Herb Crusted Flounder with Basmati Rice.  Oh my.  It was REALLY good!  Richella was right, it would be delicious on top of ice cream.

Baked Apricots

2 15oz. cans apricot halves, drained
1 1/2 cups crushed Ritz crackers
1 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar

Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Place apricots, cut side up, in bottom of pan.

Mix crushed Ritz crackers, butter, and brown sugar together. Sprinkle mixture on top of apricots.

Bake at 300 degrees 35-40 minutes.
