This is a long time favorite of mine and served at many family events. You may top it with any fruit favorite ...
My children request this recipe favorite each holiday and I don't think Christmas would be the same without baking atleast 3-4 of these Beauties. Of course the fruit options change and often Cherries are atop this favorite at Christmas;
