Personal Notes:
This dessert is very delicious and a great use for fresh fruit, especially in the Okanagan. Always a crowd pleaser as it is beautiful as well as tasty. Allows you to use your creative talents in the design. I always use my homemade apricot jam for extra goodness. A family favourite in the summertime.
