Interesting ingredients for an interesting recipe from Carolyn at AllRecipes. Try other cake flavors, as well as different kinds of jam flavors. This recipe calls for dough for a double crust pie. You can either use your own pie crust recipe, or from a mix, for those who may be intimidated by a pie crust. Feel free to use other kinds of jams and cake mixes.
