Directions:
Season the thawed Cornish hens inside and out with salt and pepper. Fold the wings back and tie the legs together with twine. Cut the butter into six equal parts and rub over each hen. Scatter the onions in a large roasting pan. Place hens in pan and pour broth over them.
To make apricot glaze, combine the ingredients in a small heavy saucepan and bring to boil, stirring. Brush glaze over hens.
Roast in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 1 hour or until the hens are golden brown and tender. You may need to check and see if they need basting with the broth during cooking.
