Grandma Anne made baked apricots for Thanksgiving. They were incredible as usual. After baking, the brown sugar combined with the melted butter, caramelizing the apricots and giving them the unique flavor that make this golden and bubbly dish a winner every time.
3 (15 ounce) cans apricot halves, drained
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
50 buttery Ritz crackers, crumbled
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In an 8x12 inch baking pan, layer half of apricots, brown sugar, cracker crumbs, and butter. Repeat. Bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown.
