"One additional note: this is best served fresh out of the oven. The leftovers got very dry."

"We made this with homemade peach butter. It would be better with chunks of fruit (same kind as jam used); about 1/2-1 cup would be fine, I think.

I used a 9.5 inch deep dish pie pan and it almost overflowed, so I don't know what I'll use when I add the extra cup of fruit...
All the chocolate sunk to the bottom, as did most of the peach butter; not sure how to prevent that.
Also, I used tub margarine instead of the butter for the topping and it didn't crumble, it glopped in a sticky mess... So, don't substitute tub for stick margarine/butter."

"DELICIOUS!!! It turned out JUST LIKE the picture & oh so easy! I can't wait to try this with other kinds of preserves. I think raspberry would be great."
