    peachez's Note:

    Depends on what I have on hand for the extract, nut and jam combinations (I use Knott's Berry Farms Jams) ie: strawberry jam with walnut lemon crust. Your choice of any combination. I also use two different jams to make it particularly festive with lightly toasted tinted coconut. Play with your favourites and enjoy. Prep time includes toasting the nuts and coconut.

      All I can say is yum. Thesre were really quick and easy to prepare, and the flexibility of the recipe is fantastic. I used almond extract, almonds and fruits of the forrest jam. But any combination of flavours can be achieved-simply by using a different kind of jam. Ill definitely make these again.
