Baked Apricots with Almond Topping

A short time in the oven softens sweet apricots and intensifies their flavor. The buttery almond-and-brown-sugar topping turns golden after baking, adding a nutty crunch.

Cook's Notes

Other stone fruit, such as peaches or nectarines, can be substituted, but they may take longer to bake.

    Sorry, I meant 400 F. And I only baked for 15 minutes.

    Just wondering if anyone tried this recipe? Well I did, and I have to say I am less than pleased. Instead of nice apricot halves with a nice crumbly topping (like in the picture), I ended up with a mushy mess, and I did NOT use over-ripe fruit. I'm wondering if it might be that the oven temperature is too high? 400 C seems kind of high to bake fruit. I'm certain that my oven is NOT malfunctioning either.
