MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2013

The recipe was easy to make and didn't take long. There was very little apricot flavor. Overall the flavor was muddled.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2010

We enjoyed this recipe very much. I doubled the recipe to make enough for my family and would probably reduce the amount of apricot preserves by 1 or 2 tablespoons as we thought it was a bit too sweet. Thanks for the recipe!
