2 cans apricot halves, drained and 3/4 c. juice (syrup) reserved
18 Ritz crackers
3/4 cup brown sugar
6 Tbsp. butter (Oh please just use real butter this one time. Please? It's CHRISTMAS!)
Grease a casserole, layer apricots, crackers, then sugar. Dot with butter. Pour 3/4 cup reserved apricot juice over all. Bake uncovered at 350° for 20 minutes.
Doesn't get much easier than that, does it? Great with pork or chicken, but I'd eat it with pretty much anything. Including nothing. Right out of the casserole dish. As it sits on the countertop. Cold. At 2 AM. With a serving spoon.
I'm just sayin'.
