I got this recipe from Southern Living. I make it every Christmas morning and it is a hit everytime. I also make this for the hanging of the greens breakfast at church every year, as it is a requested dish! My daughter doesn't really like blackberries so when I make it for the famly I put blackberries on one half and strawberries on the other half.
