Notes

 
When we made this recipe the first time, we used strawberry preserves. It was wonderful! The second time we made it we used strawberry preserves on half, and boysenberry jam on the other half. I personally loved it, but I love boysenberry.
Another note, we did use preserves, but you could use jam as well, it’s all really up to what you would like.
