    I made this for my book club and they gobbled it down and then wanted the recipe. This is so good and so easy to prepare. I will fix this again and again.

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

    Very good and extremely easy to make! I bet this would be excellent with raspberry or strawberry preserves, too!
