Baked apricot and cream cheese

This was yet another dessert to make use of the plethora of apricots from my produce basket. I loved this one and the kids gobbled it up. 

1 1/4 lb. apricots, halved and pitted (weight before removing the pit)
1/2 C sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 oz. crushed cookies (I used graham crackers)

Put the apricots in a pot with the sugar. Add 2 tablespoons of water and heat until simmering. Cover and cook ten minutes. 

Drain the apricots, reserving the syrup. Put the apricots in an oven-proof dish. Measure out 6 tablespoons of the syrup and pour the rest over the apicots.

Beat the cream cheese until soft, and then gradually add the reserved syrup until smooth. Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the apricots. Sprinkle the cookie crumbs over the top.

Bake in a 400 degree F oven for  10 minutes until the crumbs begin to darken and the filling has warmed. Serve immediately.
