MY REVIEW

Outstanding. Mine never end up looking as pretty as the examples but, great flavor. Definitely take the time to process the berries and jam fully as pieces of fruit don't work so well in this one.

MY REVIEW

This is very tasty. The only problem I had was the dough was to thin to roll. Had to add more flour.
