Notes

A woman I met at a picnic brought this wonderful dessert. This is the recipe she gave me. She said you can use any jam/preserves but that she thought apricot tasted best with the almond flavor of the crust. I agree.

It's lighter than you'd expect by reading the recipe, a nice balance of buttery and sweet.

Sounds yummy!
