    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.

    This was easy to make and very impressive to others. My hosts complimented me repeatedly even before we ate it. Then even more, because it was fabulous.
