Directions:
1. In a 9-inch skillet melt 3 tablespoons butter. 2. Remove from heat and sprinkle with 1/2 cup brown sugar. 3. Arrange on sugar 24 canned apricot halves. Let stand while mixing batter. 4. Beat until very light 2 eggs. 5. Add, while beating, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. 6. Heat to boiling point: 1/4 cup Pet Milk diluted with 1/4 cup water and 1 Tbl shortening. 7.
