    This is a well earned 5 star rating * Huge hit this past Easter. I used Peach Jam as I am not fond of Raspberries. I also made a boo boo and did not add the nuts to the cheese mixture. No big deal ! They just made the spread look even more appetizing as I patted them on the Outside of the Mold * Make again? Absolutely * Not just my Opinion *Family members raved about it as well * Plate nearly licked clean *Janie

    Very good recipe. I' ve made this several times and it's always a big hit. I always have a hard time finding the seedless preserves so I use Bonne Maman Raspberry Preserves. To me it's just as delicious.

    Great recipe. I like to put it in a springform pan to chill and cover the top with the fruit spread. You can also use seedless strawberry jam.
