"This recipe takes a trip back in time to 6/22/01 when it was received via email as a RECIPE OF THE DAY. I don't know the exact source, but did make this note: Jo Ann S. was acknowledged & said "This is a favorite at my house when company is coming. Not only is it elegant, but it's easy to prepare & fool-proof. Since the alcohol burns off during cooking, it's also safe to feed to children." I agree w/her. This sounds like it would be an easy-fix & elegant favorite at our table too. Enjoy!"

10 stars! This is very easy and so tasty. With Twissis's permission, I subbed apple brandy for the apricot brandy and it worked great.
