Made these for the Holidays this year and turned out great! Wonderful way to break up all the chocolate goodies

Very delicious! I have made these several times and everyone always loves them. I do believe that the cooking time is off - in my experience, baking the crust for 10 minutes is too long, and they do not take 24 - 26 minutes to bake.

These are sooo good. I didn't have apricot preserves, so I substituted Mango preserves and I had a real Mango so I cut that up and added it to the filling. Didn't put cranberries in. Thought it was a little too sweet so I added about 1 tsp. of lime juice. Ummm.
