Many years ago, the lady who submitted this recipe to her local newspaper received a pair of pinking shears for her effort! You can see that it is a very old recipe, hence the "serve with cream". Who has real cream these days? The modern way would state serve with whipped cream. Also, exactly what is a moderate oven anyway??? Other fruits can be substituted, as well.
