      Honestly do not know how I missed this recipe - what a wonderful combination and will be great at Xmas. Thanks for submitting - highly recommended as an adult dessert.

      These are extremely rich!! A little bite goes a long way. The fruit is a nice mixture with the flavors blending together well. I plumped the fruit in orange juice in place of the brandy and as I was doing the review I looked up and saw pecans. As you can guess, I left them out as well as the powdered sugar.

      These are yummy, and I could have eaten the brandy-soaked fruit by the spoonful! I'd never made anything quite like this before, so I wasn't sure what the finished texture should be, but I didn't think the center was done at 40 minutes and wound up baking it about 10 minutes longer.
