Prepare the Apricots:

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Wash the apricots, cut them in half, and remove the pits. Place 2/3 of the apricots cut side up on a buttered baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool. Do not turn off the oven.

Peel the apricots. If the apricots are very firm or under-ripe, increase the baking time to 7-10 minutes.
