"Every one who loves fruit loves it. I like that it is so versatile you can use any fruit that is ripe at the time and I have used jello to make the glaze so I have made it in different flavors as well. I also used just a graham cracker crust. Very yummy no matter how I make it."

"This is wonderful!! The light, lemon flavor with the apricot glaze brought out the sweetness in the fruit. The perfect dessert after a stout meal because it's light and fresh."
