Notes

I don't remember where this recipe came from, but I've made it quite a few times, and it is delicious. Wish I could give credit where credit was due. I like it best with apricot jam, but have also used raspberry, cherry and strawberry - they were great too. Just make sure when you put the jam in the pan, be sure not to go too far to the edges.
