    This is a great recipe. Very easy, works up in nothing flat. Great last minute dessert, but pretty enough for company. I've made it quite often, sometimes substituting different fruits - it is always good!

    Flavor of Apricot pie without the fuss. I dotted with a bit of butter for extra richness. Very good.
